Ashraf Hanna – Form & Material

I came across Ashram Hanna’s work during my GCSEs while doing some research and saw a video of him when he was studying at the Royal College of Art, I finally met him last year when i went to the Ceramics Art London 2015 where he was selling some of his work and it was a great opportunity to have a chat with him.

His work is concerned with exploring form through scale, colour, texture and material. He is interested in how these elements can inform our perception and understanding of objects. Scale and the space an object occupies have a significant role in determining our relationship with it. Colour, whether bright, soft or intense, has a powerful effect in defining its character. Texture invites us to examine the tactile qualities of the surface, and the role this has in influencing our ability to read and comprehend it. This is further emphasised when choosing the material: solid, dense ceramics or translucent glass.
