Artist Statement

I’m passionate about creating pieces that inspire joy in people's daily routines and favorite spaces. My work is developed by combining hand painted, botanical motifs with my pottery and weavings. Inspiration for my pieces come from observation of pattern, texture and color in nature, and the different cultures I’ve visited around the world. 



Kayla Bol is a full-time studio artist living in northwestern Wisconsin with her husband, son, and two cats. Atypical of most kids, she had the unique opportunity to travel the world throughout her adolescent years and into adulthood. Her experiences of different cultures and scenery around the globe have informed Kayla’s approach to exploring the potentials of ceramics, fibers and painting and how they intertwine. While attaining her BFA at UW Madison, she had the opportunity to study closely with ceramicists Gerit Grimm, Dara Hartman and Brian Kluge; weaver Marianne Fairbanks; and painters Leslie Smith III, TL Solien, Nancy Mladenoff, Jessica Mongeon and Suzanne Truman. She has exhibited her work in galleries around Wisconsin, including: Joel Hayden Salter Art Gallery - Rice Lake, Art Lofts Gallery - Madison, 7th Floor Gallery - Madison, The Main Gallery in Memorial Union - Madison, and Solo Exhibition in CIVA’s 212 Gallery - Madison.
