“When in the presence of ancient knowledge and at your most raw, fluidity is achieved. Our outer layers are shed and we are only left with the truth of our existence. We are transcendent beauty and elegance that permeates our spirit into serenity and balance.”
The Oneness Of Being,
Katia Al Tal
A sculptor at heart, it came naturally to Al Tal to work with clay and produce Nuwa Creations ceramics; a series of practical everyday objects that are pure of colour and line; delicate but sturdy and completely sculptural.
Al Tal’s work is a mixture of art and aesthetic that is multi functional, decorative and, above all, creative, resulting is great appreciation from a wide range of consumers.
Her creations are found in both private collections, as well as Museums and art galleries. Due to their functionality as household pieces these works of art are capable of pleasing the most exigent art critic.
Al Tal’s creations are a culmination of her authentic, mystical and spiritual inner world along with her internal experiences that are brought to life through her skills in various art mediums starting with theater, film making, sculpting and ceramics .
Her journey into sculpture, calligraphy and ceramics was a natural continuity and a fluid part of her creative trip. It is through ceramics that the ancient soul of clay and calligraphy is revived and allowed to vibrate again with renewed life in a postmodern era.
Her sculptural work is a striking combination of unusual complexity; perfectly molded into minimalistic organic shapes.
