June 2020 Layl Newsletter

This past week has been the most painful and heartbreaking week in the memory of Minneapolis’ residents.  I never thought I would see the entire area around the high school my daughters graduated from destroyed by fire and looting.  But the anger at the killing of George Floyd has triggered some long seeded pain here and now around the country.   My daughter has gone to protest and though I am filled with fear when she goes I support her desire to be heard.  A lot of my friends live in the areas that are hard hit and Saturday night I read on Facebook about their plans to defend their own neighborhoods. Sadly, many small businesses and non-profits have been sacrificed in this cause and now they will need to rebuild.

I wanted to share a few of the places I am donating to with you. If you are in a place to give please consider a donation.

In her newest blog post, Layl reflects on the art which grabs her attention. She describes the feeling a viewer has of a magnificent piece, from the perspective of herself as an artist. She states: “I get obsessed just looking at them. They make me want to live vicariously through those artists. Which is crazy because I live that life already, compulsively creating nearly every day of my life.”

She reflects on the dualism of artist and viewer; creator and consumer. View the full post Here.

February 2020 Layl Newsletter

In January, Layl created several teapots that had added dimensionality like branches, ladders and carousels. These new teapots, while still functional, go beyond the teapot form and build beyond it’s “borders.” You can view more sculptural teapots like the Flamingo Carousel Teapot (above) at Layl’s website.
