"Clay Expressions" by May Abboud
Opens on Thursday December 6, starting 6 pm
Exhibition runs until January 10, 2013

In this body of work, ceramist May Abboud explores the use of textures on her sculptures. Be it vessels or masks, these surfaces are inspired from nature as well as from the rich cultural heritage inherited, such as embroidered dresses, copperware and traditional Bedouin jewelry all exhibiting a rich exterior quality. Using a variety of fabrics, from netting to lace or other textured objects, she imprints onto the clay, and at times enhances the surface with a subtle color.

Born in Haifa, Palestine, May Abboud holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts, and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the George Washington University in Washington D.C.. Slowly along her career, she shifts into art, and attends numerous workshops on ceramics and paintings, and takes part in Artist Residencies. Since then she participates in several group shows in Lebanon and France. In 2009 she is awarded the “Prix du Musée Sursock” at the XXIXth “Salon d’Automne” and in 2012 the “Mention Spéciale du Jury” at Sursock Museum’s XXXIst “Salon d’Automne”.

Art Circle is located off Hamra St. next to the Crown Plaza hotel, near Wardeh's fabric store
