MEETING CERAMIC. Marrakech. 2011.

When I received the invitation from David Bloch, the gallerist in Marrakech, i directly seen the beautyful oportunity this travel could represent for me.

It was the perfect Time and Space in which I could find a new point of view on my creations. It was time for the next dimension. An introduction to Volume.

HERMA SAKINA. Marrakech. 2011

More than 10 years after I’ve have met Marrakech for the first time, I had the great opportunity to come back and rediscover it.

I’ve been invited by David BLOCH, who owns a contemporary art gallery in the gueliz* of Marrakech, in order to start a colaboration through the Love of Art and Marrakech.

I’ve been inspired by two things. The first one is a strong symbol in Marrocco, Fatima’s hand.
