I was talking last week in Cologne about how we put different layers of identity on, now more than ever. Here goes a beautiful example:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@MaryamRiazi is a self-taught ceramic artist from Iran who studied Fashion Design at Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her work is as diverse and profound as the culture she was exposed to growing up in Shiraz (Iran). She works in creating modern yet bizarre shapes, with a middle eastern influence.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

PURE SPIRITUAL:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Idealists seek perfection and purity, restoring equilibrium by connecting with the Uber-natural. They embrace technology for good while shifting between realism and mysticism in pursuit of a personal haven.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To address a renewed bond with nature, organic matter, raw materials, and pure textiles are selected which show nature’s traces, organic structures, and irregularities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
