Jody Folwell is one of the most important innovators of our time. She experiments with abstraction, composition, movement, themes and textures. Because of her work with different slips and firing techniques, her polished pieces take on different colors, shades, and textures all within the same piece of pottery. For those of us who have become interested in contemporary pueblo ceramics, the importance of Jody Folwell is now a matter of record. Her courageous deviations form the traditions of her time are an inspiration for other potters for years to come.
Kaa was born in 1991. Polly Rose Folwell is Kaa’s mother, and Susan Folwell is her aunt. She learned to make pottery from her mother and grandmother. Kaa’s work often depicts some graffiti imagery.
