Sholeh works in several media, including sculpture, painting, and web design. As a sculptor, She feels completely free to move between all the media, traditional and new, to pursue an idea. Her work aims at evoking a sense of connectedness with, and reverence for the natural world. She exhibits her jewelry, ceramic bird sculptures and bird monotypes at the Sign of the Dove Gallery.
Her porcelain jewelry designs are inspired by nature including direct impressions of the stones and driftwoods from Newfoundland Canada. They are fired to 2400 degrees to achieve hardness and durability. The precious metals–24-karat gold, and silver–are applied for the last firing to accent and infuse the pieces with a lustrous finish. All of her designs are original and one-of-a-kind.
The birch earrings are little abstract paintings that she creates by marbling the birch wood with Acrylic paint. These earrings are readily reversible.
The bird imagery in her ceramic sculpture and monotypes symbolize freedom. The ceramic sculptures are wall reliefs. They are hollow, allowing a positive message to be nested inside, imbuing them with a wish or a good thought, there by making them a keepsake.
