Halima Cassell is one of the UK’s most distinctive and dynamic ceramicists and sculptors. This extensive show is an opportunity to see the full range of her work.
Halima Cassell is gifted with an exceptional ability to visualise complex patterns and mentally project them on to 3-D objects. Her work is diverse in inspiration and form, but her personal style is instantly recognisable due to her bold, energetic designs, crisp carving and intuitive understanding of how to integrate pattern, form, material and scale.
This extensive show is an opportunity to see the full range of her work including the debut of her latest piece, Virtues of Unity, an assemblage of ceramic sculptures which when complete will represent every nation on earth. Cassell is inspired by geometry, architecture, natural forms and foreign travel, she creates deeply carved forms in unglazed ceramic, bronze, stone, wood and cast glass.
She exhibits in the UK and internationally and her work is represented extensively in leading private and public collections.
