Human Identity in the Art of Sky Glabush

In this episode of Cloud9 we interview Leili Towfigh, a diverse multidisciplinary artist, philosopher and social justice educator based in Boston, Massachusetts. BahaiTeachings.org arts-editor Shadi Toloui-Wallace spoke to Leili about the 20+ years she’s spent creatively exploring concepts of beauty, science and the oneness of humanity.


Leili reveals her attraction to harmony and order, and how their important connection to science and mathematics forms the signature artistic patterns in her work. Beyond the aesthetics of her ceramic creations, though, she also expresses her deep passion for social justice initiatives—and the connections she makes between her striking art, her vision of race unity and achieving the oneness of humanity.

    Wonderful art-work, Leili !! You always showed an innate quality of being in harmony with people you associate with, and an appreciation of the beauty in all people and in nature, as evident by example in your art-work here. Hoping you continue this work.
