'Bahrain'

Ceramic Bowl

January 2020

The years of my life spent in Bahrain are the inspiration behind the creation of this bowl.

My drawings highlight the diversity of Bahrain's population with its mix of different faiths and culture making it a global fusion city. It reflects the sights and sounds witnessed by me during the various festivities, showing the fans I drove by during my years of dropping my children to school, the aroma of shish on the sidewalks in the winters, the groups of ladies in offer bars, the moonlit nights and the ocean surrounding with its turquoise and azure blue hues.

The black and white checkered floor in the middle of the bowl is the representation of the central lying theme of my piece, joy, a central courtyard with people of all ages indulging in joyous festivities as families, parents, carrying babies in their arms ensuring they are never left out of any happy occasion.
