Description

Sister Louise is a ceramic piece, designed by Pepa Reverter, and made and hand-painted one by one by Bosa Trade in Italy. Louise is one of the sisters in the Sisters collection made up of a family of five heads of women – half sculpture, half vase, and a half container. It is a tribute to all the creative and struggling women who have left their cultural mark on the world. With her name, Louise pays tribute to Louise Bourgeois, the French artist and sculptor who was recognized professionally in the artistic world from the maturity of her seventies. A feminine and powerful voice that made way for many other women in the art world.

This version of Louise in Black and White is hand painted, recalling exotic lines of wild animals, causing a contrast and a drawing that highlights and defines the piece in a delicate and forceful way, with great character.

About the designer


Pepa Reverter

She wants to live in a kinder, better world, so consciously creates work that inspire us to do so. She graduated in print making from the Llotja School of Applied Arts, followed by a degree in sculpture at the Barcelona Faculty of Fine Art, and eventually a Masters’ degree in video and TV production at the Universitat Politècnica, Barcelona. An academic exploration from some of the oldest forms of communication to the most modern, a journey linked by the timeless need to make sense of the world through art and stories. Along the way, she was fortunate to study under some of the great masters: working for Jaume Coscuella and Magí Baleta, engravers of the work of Joan Miró, Jaume Plensa, Xavier Grau, and Garcia Sevilla. She has worked across many mediums as a visual artist, illustrator, designer, ceramicist, professor, photographer, and videographer. Amongst her professional posts: working at TV3, illustrating for the International Herald Tribune, designing ceramic pieces for Bosa, design for BD Barcelona, and many other roles in between. She frequently collaborates with her partner, the powerhouse Creative Director Ramón Ubeda, with whom she created their stunning, shared, studio space in the @22 district of Barcelona. Her ability to both switch between and fuse many mediums lends her work substance and a fascinating depth. Her work is thought-provoking; it can be hard hitting with a distinct social message or, at times, ethereal and delicate and others exuberantly joyful, with a fierce, feminine energy. Creativity with purpose is what motivates her explorations with colour and form, creating a mood, invoking a memory, or stirring an emotional reaction as important as function. She captures the spontaneity and enthusiasm that is usually lost past childhood, maintaining a fresh, open-minded approach to each new project. Her studio is a place of joyful creativity where she continues to work across several mediums and disciplines with the brands, companies, and collaborators that move and inspire her.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
