About This Artwork
This whole body of work was made this year! After the October 17th Revolution, amidst the economic crisis and the corona virus pandemic, and more tragically after the 4th of August 2020 explosion. It is the gravity, the distortion and the guts... the first time I feel the work extruding from me, and not wanting to stop flowing...It is the flow--clay deciding to go its own way. Am I, again, a witness?
I am an artist who works primarily in clay. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1958. Most of my youth and adulthood was under the bombs due to the consecutive wars from civil to external invasions. I earned a BS in business and computers where I met Dorothy Salhab Kazemi, the Pioneer ceramist in the Middle East. She was trained under Gutte Eriksen, the well-known Danish ceramist. I opened my studio in 1983 and started producing functional earthenware pots with a variety of glazes fired at cone 5 temperatures. Then I went to Godsmith's College in London where I completed my postgraduate degree in Ceramics. I had five personal exhibitions in Beirut, and many abroad, with five international symposiums and workshops. With a friend, Greta Naufal, I had an exhibition at the Millesgargen museum in Stockholm, Sweden. I am an adjunct professor of ceramics at Lebanese American University.
