ABOUT LEEN POTTERY
A graduate from the American University of Sharjah with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. It was then that I discovered my passion for clay, learned how to throw on the pottery wheel and felt deeply connected to this technique.
Ever since, pottery has been a source of happiness and serenity to me. When I’m in the studio, I feel centered, engaged and connected. I see pottery as the opposite of our daily life events, a slow haptic process, a form of meditation that teaches us patience. It’s a beautiful process of construction and destruction, where pieces get broken and repaired. A process that reflects a person’s thoughts, personality and soul.
I’d like to see my pots as tactile objects. Ones that make a person feel the need to touch them and feel the desire to experience them by viewing and engaging with the surface, shape, and their delicate details.
All my pots are handmade and thrown on the wheel.
The glazes give each and every pot a different personality. I almost never incorporate glaze merely as a functional element in the pot, I spend a great amount of time developing and exploring glazes. In fact, I find the need to develop my glazes everyday more than developing anything else in the process.
