Slip cast ceramic forms glazed with etching and pigment
Ali Salman and Suzanne L. Seesman
2018-2019


Ali shared his story about losing his library full of books to a US drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq. Suzanne Seesman made hollow ceramic books. Ali took them and etched the titles of some of his favorite and, in his view, seminal pieces of literature, into the ceramic. This was displayed as part of the Friends exhibit at Twelve Gates Arts in Summer 2019.
