Zeba Imam's work is inspired by the marks of human activity all around us. Bustling cityscapes, timeworn aspects of an industrial building, casual graffiti... They convey the universal human wish to be seen and to communicate: I am/was here.
Over the last year Zeba has been focussing both on refining her existing work and exploring the metaphor of palimpsest further. Palimpsest refers to the layered quality of all human experience. Zeba is guided by clay's nature and lets the mark making be less controlled. Zeba attempts to capture the accidental nature of layers on forgotten surfaces and the stories they inadvertently tell.
Zeba says: "I work from my studio at Spode Works, which was once the centre of industrial pottery in England, a sprawling, heritage building bearing the marks of the past - a significant source of inspiration itself for my work."
Zeba Imam is the winner of the Rising Stars 2022 Maker's Award.
