Nov. Exhibition: Sanam Emami
Some ceramicists have such a distinctive style that they stand out from the crowd no matter what. Sanam Emami's work exemplifies this. Her pots are time consuming; with layered stencils, geometric patterns and ornamentation that are full of floral and arabesque imagery. She takes her historic influences of middle eastern work and modernizes it, giving a contemporary look and feel. What ties it all together? That chocolatey clay body and the functionality of it all. Enjoy!!
Being a gallery that specializes in exceptional, functional, ceramic art, we are regularly contacted by ceramic collectors and people who just love pottery. One of the issues many of them have is that they have collected ceramic work to the point that they can no longer manage the amount and or have to downsize due to life situations. In Tandem Gallery has been able to acquire quite a range of work from numerous estates and collections which include work of some of the best known and loved contemporary ceramic artists. These pieces are limited in that the artists may or may not be regular ceramicists we represent here at the gallery and may have been created in a certain style or time of their lives that denotes their growth and change as their careers developed. The constant for all of them is that they were all cherished by someone with a connection to the ceramic world and will hopefully live on as gems in other collectors homes or collectors yet to be.
