Al Anqad

10″w, 44″h, 2″d, maple, holly, gumwood

A wall-hung piece related to my cabinet “Altajwal.” “Anqad” means “the ruins” in Arabic.


Al Uqueaa

12″x26″x2″ walnut, wenge, and mirror

This wall-hung piece plays with overlapping latticeworks based on Mamluk design from 13th century Egypt and animal forms. ‘Al Uqueaa’ is the Arabic transliteration of ‘the snake’.


Mamluk Book Stand

24″x16″x11″ walnut and wenge

A book stand ornamented with overlapping lattices inspired by the Arabic geometries of the 13th century Mamluk Dynasty.
