Ria Leigh

Trained in fashion design and instinctually drawn to traditionally female-dominated mediums (perhaps due to her family's matrilineal tradition of hands-on expression), Ria Leigh finds inspiration and source material in ancient and modern realms: mythology, anthropology, '90s club kids, Peruvian exotica, the Internet.. She weaves these uncommon threads in ceramic, textile and paper-based forms, based in Seattle, Washington. Her work is therefore esoteric and symbolic but also pragmatic and utilitarian. It solves real-world problems—where shall we eat and how will we stay warm—as it folds and unfolds ages-old ideas about identity, spirituality, power and being.
