Clay / Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Artist Statement

I love working with clay because of its versatility and expressiveness. I make simple forms and I focus on texture, drawings and colors. Nature and childhood memories play a big role in my inspiration. I aim to make pots that are functional, beautiful and part of everyday life.


I grew up in Lebanon in a small village, and I graduated from college with a degree in Sacred Art. After graduation, I started working with clay at the Workshop for Sacred Art, where I developed my skills with the help of books and trial and error. In 2006, I moved to the United States and I have been a full time potter ever since, working in my home studio in Baton Rouge.
