DAARINA ABDUS-SAMAD | ARTIST PORTFOLIO
DAARINA ABDUS-SAMAD: STATEMENT
“The moment my hands touched clay, I was hooked and knew that ceramics had to be a part of my art experience!
The connection with the mud motivates me to act as a vehicle 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 the medium to extract the many expressions waiting to be shared. I marvel at the process of “Turning Mud Into Meaning”™ each time I create a work of ceramic art.
