Clayheads by Aman Khanna.

Aman Khanna's Clayheads are unique ceramic sculptures that form part of his Claymen series: a continuing exploration of the nature of identity, selfhood and what it means to be human in the world.

Each Clayhead is hand sculpted from clay. Khanna creates a unique expression for each one with a deft and minimal hand, using a simple series of universal features to create a profound sense of character which is immediately appealing.

Whether used as a single decorative ornament or aranged in a crowd, Clayheads have a compelling presence that encourages thoughtful consideration.

The use of unadorned clay bears particular significance for the artist. Khanna notes that "clay is a simple, everyday raw material used by everyone. Sun dried, half-baked in an open fire - clay is omnipresent and yet individual in the way one uses it."

As Khanna observes, "Let the Claymen look at you, and use them to look at yourself."

Handmade in India. Unglazed stoneware.

Please note that due to the unique and handmade character of these designs it is not possible to specify a particular Clayhead when placing your order.
