About the Artist
'I consider this collection to be a turning point on my development as maker, from my tiniest pots to my largest plates. From an obsession with functionality and productivity to an exploration of purely decorative unglazed surfaces. An amalgam of my main sources of inspiration at the moment: the subtle yet powerful rhythms, colours and textures of nature, Spain - the country I come from - and Japan - the country I am drawn to -. From obvious to subtle.'
Bisila Noha is a Spanish ceramic artist based in London. Her work draws from influences and explorations of her Spanish and Equatorial Guinean heritage. With her work, Bisila aims to challenge Western views on art and craft; to question what we understand as pro- ductive and worthy in capitalist societies; and to reflect upon the idea of home and one- ness pulling from personal experiences in different pottery communities.
Her practice extends from wheel-thrown pieces with the distinctive addition of marbled slip decoration to create eye-catching abstract landscapes; to sculptural pieces mixing throw- ing, coiling and carving which connect her to her roots, the makers that precede her and our past.
Her work has been featured in many publications including the Financial Times and the New York Times. Notable exhibitions include the Crafts Council’s exhibition ‘Maker’s Eye’ in 2021 and the landmark exhibition ‘Body Vessel Clay’ at Two Temple Place - presenting the work of Ladi Kwali, Magdalene Odundo and Bisila Noha, three generations of Black women artists working with clay, to 'celebrate surprising new ways of exploring one of the world’s oldest artform.' In 2022, two of her sculptures were purchased by the V&A for their collection.
