Kyla Toomey
Boston, Massachusetts 

Kyla received her BFA in ceramics from Alfred University and her MFA in ceramics from The Ohio State University. She has been awarded artist residencies at a number of clay programs and has teaching experience at every level from college to children’s clay camps. Kyla was an Adjunct Professor and Artist in Residence at Kansas State University and now teaches in the Boston area.  She has exhibited her work extensively since 2004. Toomey says, “Making pots is about production and interaction. The repetitive actions of making, the stacks that form and grow in the studio, seeing the way bowls nest within each other, chattering up the grouping, picking up one plate to reveal the one beneath, and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies the piles.”
