Silhouettes by Clay Rice

Clay Rice is described by author Pat Conroy as a “great talent who combines soul and passion”. Silhouette artistry and storytelling have been in his family for more than 80 years. His grandfather, Carew Rice, was described by Poet Carl Sandburg as “America’s Greatest Silhouettist” and traveled worldwide, sharing his mesmerizing cutouts with delighted customers.

His work has been featured in Country Living, the Washington Times, The Atlanta Constitution, Cookie Magazine, and has appeared in the CBS series Army Wives. Clay is the recipient of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award and the IPPY Award for Children’s Book of the Year. Clay’s landscape scenes and children’s illustrations are sought after by collectors worldwide and his work is on permanent display at the South Carolina State Museum.
Clay Rice will be at Burry Bookstore Saturday, September 7, from 10 am- 2pm doing silhouette cuttings and signing copies of his new book, Mama, Lets Make a Moon. This event is by appointment only so call 332-2511 to reserve your spot!

Here's a clip of his newest book:
