Jameel Prize: Poetry to Politics
Gain an insight into the work of talented ceramicist Ibrahim Said in this online webinar broadcast live from his studio in North Carolina. Ibrahim’s work is inspired by his Egyptian heritage, creating intricate carved pieces derived from Islamic jug filter designs. During this event Ibrahim will discuss and demonstrate the use of geometry in Islamic design as the foundation for both traditional Islamic ware and his own sculptural ceramic work. He will walk through the steps from drawing onto clay, considering different design possibilities, and then carving. Ibrahim will demonstrate how even similar underlying geometric structures can become a variety of different patterns.
Ibrahim’s work can be seen in the V&A display Contemporary Ceramic Art from the Middle East from 19 May.
