Hello! I’m Meera. I am Palestinian by blood, American by birth, and I spent most of my childhood in Dubai, UAE. I have always loved creating art and exploring different mediums, and as a Studio Arts major in college I experimented with as many materials as I could get my hands on. As an artist today, I work with clay, charcoal, paint, pen/ink, photography, and woodburning. I am inspired by our natural world and in my first pottery class, I was completely entranced by the spinning lump of earth that formed into itself between my hands. Sitting on a wheel watching clay spin between my fingers is as close as I can ever get to a clear mind and grounded body. I embellish a lot of my pottery by carving paths through the clay. How I carve each piece comes from connecting with its energy; I begin carving and end when it feels right. As I carve, I visualize mountains and rivers and finally, things begin to quiet down.
