Publisher's description: A skilled and versatile artist, Siddig el Nigoumi (1931-1996) is best known for his original ceramics that beautifully express Western and African influence. Telling his story for the first time, this sumptuous publication features new photography of his finest work. Siddig el Nigoumi's fascination with form began in childhood when he modelled objects from the river clay found along the banks of the White Nile. His Sudanese roots, and the influence they exerted on his work, remained key to Nigoumi's ceramics long after he made England his permanent home in 1967. His approaches to clay enriched British studio pottery in turn, Nigoumi's inventive methods often finding expression in his adopted homeland for the first time. Featuring the best of Nigoumi's glazed stoneware and burnished earthenware, this book is essential reading for all studio-pottery enthusiasts.
