Ashraf Hanna-- oh, wow!

I was in London a couple of weeks ago  --  and isn't it fun just to say that?

I've been there often enough that I have a round of favorite ceramics galleries to see. At the Contemporary Ceramics Centre, there was an exhibit of Ashraf Hanna's relatively new work. It's stunning. I stood on the street and stared, before even going inside.

His pots are hand-built, from large coils, pushed and I guess paddled and reshaped.

This one really caught me. It's maybe 20 inches high. It sits quietly, exuding presence and glow.


Oh, you aren't in London? Not the same, but websites are everywhere.
