Ceramist and professor Amal Muraywed has brought the idea of designer jewelry back down to earth this month, in her first solo jewelry exhibition featuring bangles, broaches and necklaces made from clay and glass.Muraywed, a longtime instructor at the American University of Beirut, is better known for her sculpture and functional ceramic work, which is often displayed in the city's galleries and annual art fairs.In addition to the local materials, Muraywed took pride in the use of age-old techniques. The region is credited with discovering ceramic arts, she explained. Today, however, her jewelry is the result of decades of research into materials abundant in nature, and the show at Dehab is only a glimpse of Muraywed's output. The distinctiveness of her work blurs the line between art and jewelry, as does the environmentalist message behind each of her clay creations.
