"I'm inspired by the endless perfection of nature and the history and legends of The Bahamas. Whether Arawak, European or African, all of our influences come together to make us who we are as Bahamians, and we should embrace them all and appreciate them fully. I hope to do this through my art."
Lisa Codella is a Bahamian ceramic artist and studio potter who lives like a hermit on a breezy hill in the pine forests of Freeport, Grand Bahama.
Born in Nassau, Bahamas, Lisa spent her childhood years in the capital city where she first encountered a love for all things ceramic during the magical summer of her 12th year.
After college, university, and 20 years in the corporate world, Lisa finally decided to shed all fears and fall hands first into her love of mud.
