Ashraf Hanna – Creative Wales – Award Winner 2013.

Ashraf Hanna

 

Ashraf Hanna 2Ashraf was born in Egypt and attended El Minia College of Fine Art, then Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, gaining a BA(Hons) degree in Theatre Design in 1994.

Ashraf was introduced to Clay in 1997 by his future wife Sue. In 1999 he gained professional membership of the Craft Potters’ Association and an Elected Fellowship 3 years later.

In 2000 they moved to Pembrokeshire, establishing both home and studio there.

He also gained a Master’s Degree from the Royal College of Art, London in 2011.

Having exhibited widely across Europe Ashraf has won significant awards, and has works included in several public collections including at the National Museum of Wales.

Ashraf Hanna - An exploration in the language of form and material 2Following completion of a Masters Degree in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in 2011, Ashraf embarked on an intensive period of making and exhibiting new work both in the UK and abroad.

It was vital to launch and establish that work as rapidly as possible, but he now feels that he must take stock, distance himself temporarily from a fixed cycle of production, and seriously appraise not only what has been achieved, but contemplate the longer term development of his professional studio practice.

Ashraf will use the award to fund his project “An Exploration in the Language of Form and Material.”

The project will be realized in phases over 12 months and address three main themes; individual hand-built ceramic items, kiln-cast glass, and a new range of slip-cast functional ceramics. Reflection, observation, information processing, and appropriate hands-on training will precede each phase, providing a solid basis for informed research.

The ultimate aim is an innovative body of work illustrating excellence in both design and technical expertise as prelude to sustained practice expansion.

Ashraf will be mentored by Professor Magdalene Odundo, who will analyse and critique development of each strand of the project.
