'Akka' hand-painted terracotta vase in yellow by Moroccan artist Bouchra Boudoua.
Bouchra Boudoua was born in Casablanca, studied at Central Saint Martins and established her ceramics brand in Marrakech in 2016 as a way to explore her passion for patterns and preserving the art of Moroccan ceramics. “My grandparents were Berber so on a personal level, pottery is a way to connect to my roots,” she says. “In Morocco pottery is a man’s job and usually they paint very symmetrical, Arabic designs. I am interested in bringing modern principles to this ancient language and using simple, freehand brushstrokes.”
