Zeina-Bacardi Sakr’s series of porcelain vessels, Ivory Billows, are handmade and shaped to produce unique forms inspired by the intrinsically transforming nature of clouds and waves. The aim of each design is to depict an almost frozen moment highlighting their ever-changing motion. These delicate porcelain pieces are handmade with high fire porcelain. Each vessel is then frosted with the billows, which are essential to translate the fluidity and movement of the wet ivory porcelain clay into it’s fired and final form. The delicate forms are almost translucent yet still sharp. The clay body is left unglazed to embrace the bare organic texture and ivory color of the porcelain, while the inside is finished off with a clear glaze to endure its functionality. The beauty lies in the fact that every single piece is unique by itself in its defects and its perfections.
