Ceramics art


I sculpt forms in a close shape.
A body shape, empty but…
which carries so much inside…
pictures, memories, words.

Afsaneh Monemi hand-build her high fragile forms piece by piece. The surfaces are slip painted within a technique called photocopy monoprints. The bodies are modelled from scraps of thin clay mixed with paper.
