Hand-building ceramic forms, Ashraf Hanna makes both individual and related groups of vessels, each object informing the next. The profiles, lines and spaces emerging from this process of development, their ultimate placement in relation to one another, the juxtaposition of sharp lines and softer curves, have become a major interest to him.

The forms Ashraf develops are further enhanced by the introduction of a carefully considered, restrained palette of refined slips and stained clays. The pared-down nature of these new forms and the subtle surface treatments combine to produce vessels that are concerned with essence of form.

The ‘Petrified Forest’ was inspired by the unveiling of an ancient forest by the storms that lashed the coast of West Wales in January 2014.
