Home and Hospitality is a thirty-piece city owned community crockery set designed and crafted with love by artist Najma Abukar, in partnership with the potter Ruth Impey, with the support of Küche and the Centre for Contemporary Arts. The tableware set reflects traditional Somali pottery and geometric designs, the historical production of Glasgow’s export plates, the theme of home and hospitality and the people who call the city ‘home’.
The set is available to be hosted by you and your community. Just get in touch to find out how you can use the set at your next event: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Najma Abukar is a Somali-born, Glasgow-based photographer. Abukar documents cultural and gender identities, the African diaspora and immigrant experiences. She is passionate about curating, archiving, and (re)focusing the untold narratives of those underrepresented and marginalised. As a first-generation migrant woman of African heritage, her photographic body of work focuses on the strife and resilience of the other.
