Artist Statement:

Kyla’s pots are inspired by small everyday observations, mostly from her garden and kitchen. She designs her pots to quietly elevate whatever they are holding- be it wine, flowers, fruit, utensils, or a houseplant. Recently she has changed her clay body and surfaces to more closely reflect the Ancient Minoan pots she has spent years studying. Her new work features simplified glazes, typically white, which compliment a rich red clay body. She uses wax to paint patterns on the surfaces often inspired by plants from her yard to create compositions that further nod to the pots made in Ancient Greece. 

Bio: 

Kyla Strid a potter who lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where she is also the Director of Residencies & Adult Education at Lawrence Arts Center. She was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, where she received a BFA in ceramics from the University of Alaska Anchorage. Additionally, she studied at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln and received her MFA from Ohio University. She has been awarded residencies at the Clay Studio of Missoula, Red Lodge Clay Center, Guldagergaard (Denmark), the Lawrence Arts Center, Haystack, Penland School of Crafts, and the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts (Greece). Kyla gained extensive professional experience working as a studio technician, studio manager, gallery manager, and curator at various institutions across the country. 

Outside of her ceramic studio, she is an avid gardener, foodie, adventurer, and part time printmaker. And of her many adventures, consulting on the archeological dig of a Minoan Pottery Workshop on the island of Crete has been one of the most meaningful professional experiences. Currently, she is learning about green building and studio practices as she strives for an increasingly sustainable studio.
