"While working on this series in April 2020, I was reflecting on the idea of a “home” as I see it evolve as I grow and especially during the pandemic. A connection occurred to the feeling of being stuck at home and spending so much time under the same walls. Before, I experienced it under curfews in Baghdad for safety reasons during and consistently after the war in 2003. While now I experienced that feeling again but for distinct reasons that are familiar yet different."

"I chose to develop my own clay mixture that consists of paper, plaster and resin. My aim was to reach an innovative material that has a ceramic looking finish, yet achieves geometric forms without forcing the material. I am visually fascinated by the contrast of simple geometric forms in a hand sculpted material."
