Ceramic "Self Portrait" Project

Work In Progress


This is a piece that should reflect who I am. I decided to refer to several icons and beliefs in my culture and religion. I first chose my "hijab" (head scarf) to represent me and my religion as well. Then I added the base behind the head shaped as the arch called the "Mihrab" found in mosques as it is placed in the direction which Muslims should face while praying. In addition to that I decided to design the base with the Islamic geometric art (Arabisc) that is used to decorate the interiors of mosques and houses. Then to complete the piece I added the wavy design on the bottom to reflect my creativity as an artist.
