LaTeefah is up at dawn...setting hand-cut leather flowers into her handmade, stoneware ceramic, "Double Crossed" left hand of Luck...buy it now!...as it's the only one of its kiNd.*•..

About

ƒeldspathic ƒaire...

*•.*•
Being the daughter of American Diplomats, LaTeefah's early life formed round constant travel, and rapid adjustments to cultures she readily adopted as her own. "Family or classroom excursions to local Art Galleries, Byzantine Ruins, Ancient Cities, all had the greatest impingement on my young self…"
Not until seeking employment at what was the oldest working American art pottery, did LaTeeFaH learn the alchemy, and all that was needed to begin mastering earthen clay and glazes. "I have fired over 1,000 kilns in my life, thus far..."
"Prior to being sculpted in stoneware clay, each of my hand crafted originals are first made from an oil clay that is pliable, and very forgiving. Molds of these originals, yield a library of all that is called for in order to build as i wish. Every brain, bawdy bit, and balmoral boot, are of my own original sculpts. I never mold from any found objects. Being a sculptor, is to me, the responsibility to use my own manipulation of materials to bring forth a recognition in others of how we espy. I've a tendency to subjugate the tiniest detail, going as far as to rename feldspars and oxides." All clay and glaze are handcrafted within her studio. In tandem with these kiln fired clay appendages, LateeFah sews leather torsos, crochets wigs, hand- stitches old century garments, and even lends her voice to original sound recordings, to animate "Perverted Puppets", "liTTle leather ladees", musical "stonewareTTes", urns and reliquaries of all sizes.
In the studio, she is most pleased visiting with historical heroines, of anachronistic eras.
LaTeeFaH's etsy shop is a subsidiary to her 17 year running, Fine Art Pottery, aptly named "KiL StuDios" ©. (kil is Old English for kiln)
She has shown in galleries throughout North America, with a concentration in the city of New Orleans. She has beloved collectors of her handmade originals, on nearly every continent.
Her clientele includes John C. Reilly, Pantera and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

i play wiTh fiRe...
In the middle of the dawn, when it's quiet, and you may be dreaming, I find my sleep betrayed by the urge to sculpt and make puppets, glaze and paint pottery.

In my studio, you will find, hand sculpted, kiln fired stoneware clay and handsewn leather bodied valentine viXens dolls, carnivaL couRtesans, storYviLLe sainTs, Musical Reliquaries, tile, DilDolls, and everything in between from New OrLeans to my Studio, in the waddly waddle Spwings°°°...

Each handmade sculpture, doll, or reliquary, is named and numbered. All are signed, "KilStuDios©yearmade" followed by, "handmaDe fOr me" and the Kil Studios mascot "Killian", who wears in her art nouveau locks, a flower fOr each of the years I have been proprietress of KiL StuDios. My name is is most always etched in as well, and I pyrograph a leather tag to accompany my art into your hands.
Thank you ever so much for your interest! Please make sure to visit often, as I add a bit from every kiln to my etsy shOp, as i can neVer stOp...
