My Bio- Eli

I am Elnaz and I am Iranian artist based in Melbourne.

I was born in Tehran,Iran. I started working with clay and learning pottery when I was 17 while studying.

I started my professional life as a potter in Tehran. I make unique functional vessels in my home studio in Ripponlea. Since I arrived in Melbourne in 2013 I have set up my own studio. In my design try to break the traditional styles with adding vibrant colors and graphic glazing.

Clay is my preferred medium; I feel free to create any shape, change it completely, add or remove to achieve my goal.

My main line of work is pottery where I explore shapes and colors in glazes, but I also make sculptures with focus on lines and surfaces as main elements.
