Hannun Lyn – April 8 & 9, 2017
Hannun Lyn will be at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre and present a two-day workshop on Saturday April 8 and Sunday April 9, 2017. Hannun will be focusing on the ceramic hand built form through the exploration and experimentation of composite forms using primarily hand building and some throwing techniques. Lecture, demonstration, student interaction and question period, together will impart and expand the creative experience to the participants.
From Hannun Lyn’s Statement:
“My work is a blend of delicate art and the functional object. I am continually exploring the duality of the material. Historically, porcelain has been used as a material for the functional object, more contemporary artists and artisans have begun to use the medium for conceptual self expression. I choose both.
I work solely in pure white English porcelain because it is the clay that I understand best and feel most connected to. At times it is unforgiving but it’s qualities of pure whiteness, fragility, strength and translucency are, for me, hypnotizing. The porcelain draws me in and is a continual exercise in thought, awareness, and presence”.
Hannun’s works are exhibited at The Gardiner Museum Shop, The Aga Khan Museum Shop and The Canadian Contemporary Craft Shop at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Mad & Noisy Gallery in Creemore, Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo, the Burlington Art Centre in Burlington and the Winnipeg Art Gallery in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
