Description

Zeina-Bacardi Sakr’s series of porcelain vessels, Ivory Billows, are handbuilt and shaped to produce unique forms inspired by the intrinsically transforming nature of clouds and waves. The aim from 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 billlows, 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.

Profile Photo
Zeina-Bacardi Sakr
Based in Beirut, Zeina-Bacardi Sakr is a ceramic artist, designer and maker at heart. In 2015, she graduated from the American University of Beirut and  received the M&C Saatchi MENA award for highest academic achievement in Fine Arts and Art History. Bacardi mainly works with porcelain and stoneware, pushing the boundaries of the medium and experimentation is at the core of her practice. Through her work, Bacardi attempts to revive the art of tableware which has become mundane and mass produced. Each object’s aesthetic form and design meet its functionality, which is essential. Yet, what fuels her passion is the relation that imposes itself between the potter and the lump of clay being formed. Bacardi feels a motherly sense of attachment towards each and every piece she creates. "I like to see a little piece of myself in each object I create, reflecting the intrinsic union between what I am and what I conceive."
