THE SPA | DECK 1 HALIMA CASSELL 1975 • UK • CERAMICS The carved sculptural works of Halima Cassell are inspired by geometry and the Islamic art of North Africa and the Middle East. Using mixtures of traditional high-firing clays, molded and pressed into conventional shapes such as bowls and cylinders, Cassell transforms the clay into objects with relief surfaces made up of interlacing patterns and designs, derived from the geometry central to Islamic art. Her ceramic forms are carved with extraordinary precision and spatial imagination, resonating with profound cultural references. She discloses that most of her ideas materialize from her dreams, which are subsequently rapidly sketched into her sketchbook of detailed drawings, adding to the hundreds of illustrations waiting to be produced. 75
