I trained and worked as an architect before exploring my long-held interest in sculpture. I was drawn to the clay medium for its beautiful malleability and the endless possibilities. Architecture is a medium between two and three dimensions, the drawn and the built, and it is this same interstitial space I explore with sculpture.
My work is playful, subverting expectations and eliciting half recognition. The softness of the curves encourages a perception of a soft, squishy, smooth material, supplanting the obdurate texture and roughness of the medium. Some pieces look precariously balanced, giving a feeling of movement, levitation, or imminent collapse rather than stability. The voluptuous geometry often evokes the feminine form in abstract, hinting at a bodily expression that is outlawed in Iran, obliquely celebrating female bodies through familiar rather than idealized curviness.
