Description

Lovingly made in Jerusalem by Palestinian artist and ceramicist Inas Halabi, the Marbled Palestine collection is for lovers of the earth and its natural colours.

Inspired by traditional ways of working with the clay, Inas relies on hands-on techniques including coiling, pinching, and slab building to allow for shapes that can’t be created on the wheel to emerge.

Inas’s Marbled Palestine collection is created by mixing and wedging 4-5 types of earthenware, recycled from her studio. The designs are similar in their earth-like colors, but no piece is like another. The oval platters are fired twice to a final temperature of 1176 degree Celsius, with a layer of transparent lead-free glaze, making them strong, durable, and kitchen friendly. Although they are dishwasher safe, it is advisable (and joyful) to wash fine ceramics by hand!

Due to the handcrafted nature of this product, each piece is completely unique and may vary slightly in size, shape, texture, and colour, all depending on the bake of the day.

Please note: Due to the current epidemic, Turabi collection will only be available for purchase from August 2020.

Turabi
Turabi was founded by Palestinian artist and ceramicist, Inas Halabi.   In almost every culture, there is a long history of ceramic art and ceramic objects are often the only evidence left from vanished cultures. The ability of fired clay to with-stand time, makes it a material capable of preserving history, culture and tradition. Palestine is no different, and as the founder of Turabi, Inas Halabi, who is a Palestinian artist (and part-time ceramicist) shares “When I started Turabi,  I was thinking of the ability of my ceramics to tell stories from Palestine. This is especially important in a place like Palestine, where our history is constantly threatened with erasure. It is important for me to make my pieces in the heart of Jerusalem; I see this as a form of political resistance, amidst the influx of cheaply produced or imported goods, and the decline of the Palestinian economy as a result of the occupation.”   What motivated Inas to start Turabi in 2016, besides the fact that she loves ceramics, is wanting to provide a local product that is environmentally friendly, durable and safe to use  (using entirely lead-free glazing which is not always a guarantee in commercial ceramics’ production). Minimalist, functional and simply beautiful, Inas’s work is inspired by traditional pottery technique - all her ceramics are built by hand without any use of machines (except the furnace, of course!) In order to minimise her impact on the world, she reuses materials whenever she can and recycles all her unfired clay to create new pieces. Her beautiful work further combines a beloved handicraft, Palestinian embroidery (Tatreez), producing exquisite pieces which are hand-carved into the clay in a very labour intensive and delicate process.   Turabi’s collection is made up of a range of mugs, plates and serving bowls in various sizes. The collection also includes unique ceramic jewellery.   For any enquiries, please contact Inas by sending an email to [email protected]   instagram: @turabiceramics facebook: https://www.facebook.com/turabiceramics
