Sanam Emami’s Zeerkhaki // pottery from the ground was exhibited in January at the Schaller Gallery in Baroda, Michigan. This is the first of three exhibitions prompted and inspired by specific historical pottery forms from Iran. Emami’s body of work is a bridge between historical pots created along the trading routes of the Silk Road and her contemporary practice as a studio potter living and working in the Mountain West of the United States.

The Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery at Keene State College in New Hampshire is showing The Surfaces of Surfaces, a two-person exhibition by Sanam Emami and Del Harrow, February 8 – March 30. During a three-day visit to Keene State, Emami will do a hands-on demonstration for a ceramics class and Harrow will speak to the senior capstone class about life after graduation and give a lecture about the use of the laser cutters, CNC machines, and 3D printers.
