Nathalie Khayat (b.1966) is a ceramist living and working in Beirut, Lebanon. Oscillating between the poetic and the functional, Khayat creates sculptural pieces that range from decorative entities to utilitarian objects. Her deconstructed vessels are in dialogue with the clay from which they are formed – a contemplation, a projection from inner silence to exterior landscapes, from stillness to movement. She has participated in exhibitions at Agial Gallery, Lebanon (2010, 2015); Beirut Art Center, Lebanon (2011); Sursock Museum, Lebanon (2016); Paris Design Week, France (2014); Art Dubai, UAE (2014, 2016); PAD London, UK (2013, 2014); and PAD Paris, France (2013, 2014). Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, UK.
