clayArt Studios' Senior Instructor
Hatice's art journey began 9 years ago when she entered the University of Fine Arts in Turkey, adopting a multidisciplinary understanding of art and finding her own personal expression through clay. Upon moving to Canada, she started working in the field of ceramics and her ceramic sculptures have been exhibited in the Gardiner Museum. Hatice has also taken part in other art projects such as DesignTo and BigArtTO.
According to Hatice, "pottery is almost like meditation. Since clay comes from the soil, a natural material, it takes our negative energies away and relaxes us mentally. You don't think about anything else while making pottery."
