DAARINA ABDUS-SAMAD | ARTIST STATEMENT
“TURNING MUD INTO MEANING”
“The moment my hands touched clay, I was hooked! The connection with the mud motivates me as a vessel to bridge with resting ancestors, build creative forms, and marvel at the endless possibilities within the Art medium of Ceramics.”
“My Ceramic designs share an array of eclectic discoveries in Clay.
I enjoy creating both Functional and Decorative Whimsical Ceramic Art,
And often strive to join one, in the same. The limitless inspirations I receive while working with Clay come to me as I collaborate with this exciting tactile medium, to extract the meaning waiting to be shared.”
My slogan, “Turning Mud into Meaning” describes the process and surprises that result as the Clay and I Share Voices in it’s existence and purpose. I strive to create Unique Art to Share Stories, Capture Moments, and to form One-of-a-Kind Functional Pottery and Body Ornaments.
