Layl lives and creates in Minneapolis with her two daughters and husband. In 1999 she and her husband, Josh Blanc, opened their studio/showroom Clay Squared to Infinity in North East Minneapolis. Here she sells her work and Josh makes and sells tiles. She does many festivals through out the year and teaches polymer clay classes around the Twin Cities area.
Layl’s polymer clay sculptures and millefiore canes (called “Silly Millies”) are now well known by the polymer clay community. Her work has been featured several times in PolymerCAFE’ magazine, including a four page “Artist’s Profile”. Her sculptures and canes have also been in several books about polymer clay. She sells her work at galleries and consignment shops around the country. Her whimsical creations end up in private homes, dentist and doctor offices, coffee shops, dorm rooms, and many other places that can use a little fun!
