After graduating from the Lebanese Academy of Arts (ALBA) in Beirut with high honors (Dede Hourani Prize) Najwa Nahas went to Paris to pursue studies in Ceramic Design at Ecole Supérieure Des Arts Appliqués Duperré where she perfected her technique in molding, chemistry of clays, glazes, wood and gaz firing. She further complemented her education with a Bachelor’s degree in Archeology at La Sorbonne Paris IV to expand her knowledge of pottery and terracottas. Her work emphasizes on exploring different know-hows such as raku and saggar and incorporating them into modern organic shapes. It includes a constant research of texture, naked clay colors, wheel throwing and altering.Her art has been shown at Cairo Biennale, Salon d’Automne Sursok Museum, The National Museum of Beirut, AUB Museum, Agial Gallery, Sioufi Garden,Sursock museum shop,and Beirut Design Fair among others.For Nahas, art is not only a movement of the body but the mind and the soul too. Creation is a nonstop work, a therapy, away from stress, anxiousness and daily problems.
