LIFE is a collection of new ceramic sculptures created for Collect 2024.

The ceramics in the collection LIFE, draws inspiration from the relationship of humans with each other, as well as with themselves. 

By challenging the potential of the clay and forming gestural shapes, that burst and stretch into organic objects that identify as human forms, Rosa has been able to create works that seem to be in a constant state of movement and transformation.

The ceramic art collection is  a mixture of hand built and thrown pieces that are then altered. The emphasis is in the contrast of the texture and the choice of porcelain and black stoneware as well as the various tones you achieve when combining them together.

The placement of the individual ceramics on the bespoke Portland Stone plinths give them a new dimension by capturing the relationship between the objects.

These sculptures are more than artworks; they are vessels of narratives, carrying uniqueness and individual strength that highlight the potential for positive change though their shape and texture. The use of ceramics adds a layer of metaphor, just as clay itself undergoes transformation to become something strong and beautiful, so do we in our journeys of life.




My greatest moment of intimacy, was not the evening we took all our clothes off. 
But it was when you saw me at my most difficult state.
Like how you witnessed the most unlovable parts of me. 
As I slowly unraveled each imperfection in front of you like a scar.
And despite all of this, you loved me harder anyway.

My design process starts with observing the world.
The inspiration can be a stroll through town, human interaction, a poem or a piece of music. Everything is absorbed by my imagination and my creative process starts to take shape which entails collecting images and sketching ideas for a new collection.

The inspiration for Life comes from within my family and people around me. Its based around seeing how people interact and how the negative shapes forms when they share a space. My collection Life is about how we position ourselves and how we choose to share our weaknesses.

This poet has helped me through my design process
