Current Research



Zahed Tajeddin’s current PhD research project aims to explore the archaeological, ethnographical and practical evidence of an early vitreous material, namely Egyptian faience. The research endeavor is to examine the variety of the material chronologically and technically and experience some of the challenges that faced the ancient craftsmen. The artwork created in response to these investigations is informed both by the ancient artefacts themselves and by contemporary history and culture. It is hoped that the body of work created will inspire a renewed relationship with past cultures as well as creating an interesting contemporary response to an ancient craft.
