She has developed a range of abstract, biomorphic shapes, which are layered in open and closed forms and can be combined in different dimensions. They are therefore uniquely adaptable to different spaces.

She uses bold primary colours that heightens the graphic element and gives a strong contemporary art feel, as well as being very joyous artworks.

We think of graffiti art when we look at these wonderful shapes, as well as comic strips and the great American pop artists of the 1960s, such as Roy Lichenstein.
In her own words Desa’s says she is
..“influenced by modernist sculpture and the urban environment within which the work is produced, I spent a lot of time looking at and photographing the reflections of buildings, graffiti walls, cranes and other urban structures on the nearby Regents Canal, observing changes of the water’s surface when disturbed by wind, moving canal boats, water birds, or floating debris. This direct observation helped me to rethink the continuous forms of my porcelain vessels in terms of open and animated surfaces.”
Desa is currently showing some of her stunning flat matt grey ceramic vessels at Gallery DIFFERENT in London in an exhibition called ‘The Art and Politics of Eating’. To read about this exhibition click here.

Desa works from her studio in Camden in London. Her background as an art historian is eminently clear from the strong sense of design and aesthetics that permeates her work as an artist.
Her ceramics are effortlessly chic and would look great in any contemporary designed living space, bringing in a sophisticated design element.
