Kayla Noble

After growing up watching her grandfather work as a potter, Noble decided to take Basic Ceramics at The State University of New York at New Paltz and fell deeply in love with the medium. Graduating in 2015 with a BFA in ceramics, she accepted a 2016 residency at Taos Clay, in Taos, New Mexico. After the residency ended, she stayed in Taos for several years, set up a home studio practice, and enjoyed the feral and vivacious community one can find in a small mountain town. It was here that she was introduced to skiing and wood firing. In 2020 she came back to the Hudson Valley and currently resides in Newburgh, New York. As she continues to develop and grow her studio practice, she works to define what it means to be an artist, craftsperson, and designer in this ever changing and growing world. She approaches both her art and writing with an unfiltered and all-encompassing curiosity, like that of a child. "Right now, I make pots with a feeling of quiet profundity."
