A little about Jarjour: Strongly influenced by their Middle Eastern background, Bashar & Roula Jarjour bring a passion for traditional forms to their potter works. Every piece, whether it be slab or hand-thrown, is uniquely designed at their studio. Bashar’s scientific background is evident in his work; he seeks perfection in each form, balance of proportions and clarity of lines throughout. Roula’s eye for the unique and chaotic brings a skilled perspective to the finishes of each piece. Together, they bring a unique energy to their work to produce a broad body of vessels that are as atypical as they are attractive.
