Kathy Boyland of K Boyland Designs has been creating ceramic art impressions since the 1980's. I am in full production throughout the spring and summer pressing flowers fresh from the garden. The hand sculpted and wood impressions are created throughout the year. My daughter Stephanie and I collaborate on some of the art work, our combined work is always well received. My husband Steve maintains the garden. He grows them and I smash them!
Before smashing things in clay I was recording images as a medical photographer at Georgetown University Medical Center. Many facial features represent how patients saw themselves prior to plastic and reconstructive surgery. The exaggerated honkers were always my favorite. These images are now captured in clay. Later I worked for a government contractor as a computer programmer as well as starting and managing their art department. The recording and documenting detailed information in various forms has been apart of my work for many decades.
Delicate details of nature are preserved forever directly onto the surface of stoneware clay. All the clay works are uniquely hand formed to reflect nature. The clay is left raw, stained or sections glazed. They are fired in a kiln. The clay works are further enhanced to complete the artwork. The impressions are all one of a kind decorative pieces of art ready to hang on the wall or displayed on a tabletop. The clay works are not to be used to serve food, it is art.
The giclee prints are images of original impressions in clay. Two of the originals in clay and digital lithographs are archived permanently at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.
Take a break, have some fun and see the impressions in person at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Stop by my merchant shop to say hey and take home a lasting memory of the festival and days gone by.
