Layla Khoo

Mixed Media Artist

I am a multimedia 3D artist, specialising in ceramics and site specific installations. My work is responsive – responding to ideas, events or collections of objects. My work develops from this initial response, considering how this can be represented in a contemporary way within the context of my material practice. I often choose to create my work in ceramic for it’s broad range of historical connotations, from everyday tableware, to satire and sculpture. Ceramic objects have a familiarity to them – I find it interesting to expand on that; to bring a new or surprising face to an everyday material. I enjoy the versatility of the material, using clay in it’s plastic form to sculpt and build, or in it’s liquid form to cast objects from moulds. I am inspired by objects and work that can evoke a response and curiosity in the viewer.


My works for sale are objects with a story, made not for how they look, but for what they represent. There will be the opportunity during Open Studios to purchase one off test pieces and elements of prior exhibitions and to take a look at current works in progress


Recent works include:

“Custodians” Dalby Forest

“Contemplating Hope” Brontë Parsonage Museum

“Chronicle of Curiosities” Whitby Museum
