Mohamed Mandour

Potter

Mohamed Mandour was born in 19650, he grew up in the neighborhood surrounding the Mosque of Amr ibn el-Aas in Foustat, where he practiced pottery.

From childhood, he began to crush and process the clay, eventually shaping it into traditional forms such as the Kalol, Azar, and jug of the week. He joined the Helwan Att, which was established by the photographer Safia Helmy and the sculptor Mohamed Hagras in 1967.

Mandour’s works included dishes of various sizes, and they were distinguished by technology that alternated between the texture of rough and soft surfaces.

He has held 24 special exhibitions in Egypt and abroad. His presence in this archaeological and heritage-rich area played a prominent role in the growth and maturity of his artistic ideas. This had an impact on his creative experience and gave his utensils a very authentic personality and excellence.

He has won many awards, the most important of which are the French Cultural Center and the Public Culture Award; the International Ceramic Triennale in Cairo in 1992, 1994, and 2002; and the Venice Biennale in Italy in 1998. He has many collections at the Museum of Modern Egyptian Art, the Cairo Opera House, and many other places in Egypt and abroad.
