Add to calendar

Potter Sanam Emami was born in Iran and grew up in England. She now lives in Colorado, where she is an associate professor of art at Colorado State University. She came to pottery after studying American history, which led her to think about her own history, and her work combines influences of Persian and Islamic art with a contemporary sensibility. For Sanam, making pots, and understanding her voice within that work, is a continuing journey. Fabio Fernández will lead us in a conversation with Sanam from her Colorado studio as part of  The Artist’s Studio series.
