Leslie King

Sculptor

My sculptures are based in reality and formed by my imagination. They are about moments in time, about feelings and things that are hard to express in words.


To this end, I focus on the features of the face, head and upper torso. You can read the face in a second. It is a window to our feelings and intentions - an excellent vehicle of storytelling.

My tools are experience, observation, experimentation, and persistence. 

My process starts with raw clay in rough form. I experiment with planes, volumes, line, and pattern. The character emerges, the story begins - in a smile, a gesture, a turn of the head.


The finished sculptures illustrate my interest in storytelling, the importance of the form/surface relationship in supporting or creating narrative, and the multi-layered ceramic surface treatment I have developed for that purpose.
