Clay Rice 

Taught by his grandfather, world-famous silhouette artist Carew Rice, Clay Rice has carried on the family tradition for more than 30 years, traveling extensively throughout the United States and cutting up to 15,000 childrens silhouettes from live sittings each year. He also works in metal, and his signature pieces are large silhouette scenes sought by collectors worldwide; his works are on permanent display at the South Carolina State Museum. A lifelong singer/songwriter and accomplished musician, Rice draws from the rhythms of song to create the simple and lyrical story of friendship in a world where shadows play and imagination reveals what is not apparent at first glance. Author Pat Conroy describes Rice as a pure Low Country product who combines great talent with soul and passion. As a silhouette artist, Rice will amaze you with his quickness and skill. With a flash of scissors, he is able to capture a silhouette portrait in a matter of moments. He follows the contours of his subject as if the movement of his eyes is connected to his hands, and in about a minute a featureless sheet of paper takes on the uniqueness of the individual it represents. It is quite literally performance art. Clay Rice is available for silhouette cutting events at stores, schools and museums. For more information or to set up an event send a message to
