Gülsüm Üzel is a ceramic artist based in Istanbul, Turkey. She also teaches ceramics at a private atelier in Istanbul. She draws her main inspiration from the unique humane emotional patterns originating within ourselves and reflected to the outer world. Searching as a way of communicating our core emotions, she chooses clay as the medium of communication, as ancient and primitive as the humankind itself. Currently, her work is being displayed in London and Istanbul.
