Profile: Leyla Folwell - Ceramist and art teacher

My practice as an artist has become holistic. I am learning to look at my life as the art rather than the reverse. This body of work is the result of my need for a physical element of my self expression, but this is not a need exclusive to artists but to all people. Children feel free to express themselves through play and crafts but sadly at some point most of us loose this unselfconscious liberation. Laying dormant for years, being satisfied with the endless supply of 'dummies' our consumer society lays in front of us, we often reawaken half way through our life as the reality of our mortality starts to murmur.

What concerns me, is what do we miss in the mean time? And what are the consequences of our absence?

Brief description of work...

Each piece of my work is a dissected section of a whole form. Once I have the initial, more traditional vessel on the wheel, I work in to the clay and add slips, as the piece is moving. Once the body is firm, I cut it in two with the wheel still in motion. I am currently using underglaze colours and oxides to enhance the already layered and worn surface. Once fired I continue to work back into the clay and usually fire several times..
