WELCOME TO ABU DHABI POTTERY
Abu Dhabi Pottery was established in 1994 by Homa Vafaie-Farley. Since then countless students have been introduced to the techniques, and the enjoyment, of working with clay. In this city-centre studio, Homa has also produced many stunning works of ceramic art, which have been exhibited in the UAE, Iran and the UK. Homa's work has been obtained by art collectors as far as the United States of America and around the world.
GALLERY OF POTTERY & CERAMIC ART
A selection of Homa's unique ceramics can also be seen and bought in the Gallery at Abu Dhabi Pottery. Mainly thrown stoneware vessels, bowls and pots, which are strongly influenced by ancient Persian ceramics, but with a contemporary twist.
See some of Homa's work in the Photo Gallery.
Expert tuition in hand-building and throwing is offered in weekly classes for adults and children, currently attended by around 70 students.
Condensed private and group workshops concentrating on specific areas such as: throwing on the potter's wheel, hand building, glazing, glaze-making and various types of firing.
