A Cut & Altered Vessel in black by Ashraf Hanna.
A beautiful piece by internationally acclaimed ceramic artist Ashraf Hanna. It is a pleasure to present these spectacular sculptural ceramic works as part of our A/W season at Snug Gallery. The pieces are also available to be purchased here online.
Ashraf meticulously hand-builds his forms, making both individual and related groups of vessels, each object informing the next. The profiles, lines and spaces emerging from this process of development, their ultimate placement in relation to one another, the juxtaposition of sharp lines and softer curves, have become a major interest.
The forms are further enhanced by the introduction of a carefully considered, restrained palette of refined slips and stained clays. The pared-down nature of these new forms and the subtle surface treatments combine to produce vessels that are concerned with essence of form.
Dimensions (cm): 17x15x15
