Ceramics by Sabri Ben-Achour

Octavian C. on

Like traditional Japanese ceramists, Ben-Achour strives to create mostly functional pottery in earth tones and earth textures with a sort of calculated simplicity, aiming to capture the organic nature of the clay and other materials. His quietly beautiful works include pod and shell-shaped stoneware pieces; rounded Raku (a type of low-fire pottery) slate-gray vases with crackled surfaces and wonderfully unusual hexagonal, metal-colored honeycomb bowls.

"I try to harness natural forces and properties of different materials in my work. Process becomes both form and aesthetic. It is a rejection of human influence."
