Style signature:Ceramics inspired by historical shapes, animals, nature, colours and decorations.
Backstory:Along with his father, Abbar, Alisher Rakhimov continues a family tradition. Their line of ceramicists dates from the 18th-century and their historical knowledge encompasses over 2,000 years of ceramics made in what is now Uzbekistan. During the Soviet Union’s seven-decade rule, regional crafts in its 15 republics largely declined. But since independence, ceramics have re-emerged as an important cultural export. Leading the renaissance, the Rakhimovs recently received the UNESCO Seal of Excellence. Now they are only waiting for an opportunity to reach a larger international audience.
Inspiration:“To innovate while preserving the rich history and traditions of the art of ceramics.”
