Halima Cassell

Experiencing art created by Halima Cassell is an event that makes you question what a ceramic object can be. The intimate, carved curves appear as if they have flown from her imagination and gently landed as solid forms.
Any sense of familiarity we have with her art perhaps comes from the geometry of evolution. As a child, Halima investigated the patterns of maths and nature by dismantling plants. Trying to understand the art in the multiplication of living cells brought Halima the same joy that many people feel while gazing upon her creations.
Although being dyslexic created challenges for Halima’s academic studies, laying the family carpet at the age of 11 was one small sign of the creativity and beauty her hands would bring into the world.
