Iranian ceramic artist Elnaz Nourizadeh

 

Persia has a rich tradition of painted pottery that goes back to 5000BC. Elnaz became interested in ceramics while studying Industrial Design at the University Of Tehran where she developed a fascination in the ancient pottery traditions of Persia, which led her to taking on a part time pottery workshop. In 2006 at the age of 21, Eli started her professional life as a potter in Tehran as an assistant to a ceramic instructor and later as a teacher herself. After she relocated to Australia in 2013, she set up her own studio.
With her hand thrown, hand painted pieces, she creates a refreshing contemporary quality that combines modern designs with ancient craft. Her decorative style is striking for its fusion of the abstract with vivid colours and Zen like simplicity, leading to a distinctive range of functional vessels.
She also creates contemporary sculptures with clay and ceramics, while also including wood and metal materials. Elnaz claims – “I use sculpture to convey more well thought messages but in my tableware I express more raw spontaneous feelings, so each of them has its own place in my work. I have two different types of days in my studio, one is for creating things, the other one is a glaze day. Normally I start my day with a cup of tea in one of my favourite mugs and play classical music such as Bach or Beethoven.”
The ceramic art of Elnaz is bursting with an ebullience that reflects her love of the medium. What initially began as a casual hobby for Elnaz has now blossomed into a fully fledged business and she also has the intention of expanding into creating large scale public sculptural works.
