Hama Atelier

Hama Atelier

"As you potter around her atelier, you see that her version of Palestinian resistance follows through in everything she does. The decor of the studio speaks of her convictions. Olive branches serving as rails, lamp shade stands and even a tree trunk as a TV stand.

Everything I see is functional, she has physically integrated her beliefs into her lifestyle. Palestine is everywhere, and that is the lesson you take home with me.

You may have beautiful yet unopened coffee table books on Palestinian embroidery sit collecting dust in your formal living room. Because the truth is, it doesn’t matter how much you love and believe in something, if it doesn’t seep into your daily life, it is merely a trophy of your beliefs not a vehicle for change" CIIN Magazine
