The fruitful world of ceramics

  • • Yasmin started working with ceramics in 2018
  • • Her signature pieces are figs and pomegranates
  • • She has quickly gained a large following on social media

Yasmin Falahat is definitely what you would call a rising star. After initially studying textile design, the British artist decided to take a short beginners' ceramics course in 2018 and has been working with clay ever since. With her unique and recognisable ceramics shaped like figs and pomegranates, she quickly established herself as a craftswoman to watch. Having gained a steadily growing following on social media, she is now recognised across many platforms and her work has been shown in several prestigious magazines. As well as generally enjoying the traditional aspect of ceramics, which she describes as “a connection to the past” in various different cultures, Yasmin finds inspiration in her personal heritage, to which she relates through art.

Salt and pepper pots

These salt and pepper pots by Yasmin Falahat slot subtly into each other due to their curvy edges. One is glazed in black, with white dots at the bottom which gradually become less dense towards the rim of the pot. The other is the inverse: white with black dots, which are dense at the top of the pot and less so at the bottom. Both have small ‘feet’ on the underneath, which raises them up.

Small bobble pots

These two small hand built ceramic decorative vases by ceramicist Yasmin Falahat have a bulbous shape. One is covered with cobalt blue dots and a glossy glaze, the other is half covered in a light green glossy glaze and half dotted with a matt texture. A wavy line separates the green glaze and the dots down the centre of the vase.

Melon bowl

This small hand built ceramic bowl in the design of a melon is glazed on the inside in a glossy bright orange, with a textural seed design in the centre.
