Halima Cassell has been made an MBE!

Pakistan-born Halima Cassell received the commendation for her established style and outstanding contribution to the arts, fusing her Asian roots with a fascination for African pattern work.

The 45-year-old from Aston-on-Clun, near Craven Arms, works primarily in bronze and clay to create a range of geometric sculptors that can be seen at exhibitions, displays and galleries across the globe.

With an ongoing project that moves to include clay and designs from all parts of the world, Halima’s work featured in a major exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery from 2019.

Her sculptures also feature at many public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum and can be seen in Blackburn, the Forest of Bowland, the Ribble Valley, Nottingham, Hepworth Wakefield gallery, Birmingham and Liverpool.

The Soden Collection is pleased to have available a selection of Halima’s work. Soden Collection specialises in contemporary art and sculpture and is located in the heart of the medieval town of Shrewsbury, shropshire.
