Dina Nur Satti is a Brooklyn-based ceramic artist originally from Sudan and Somalia. Raised in France and Kenya, she holds a bachelor’s degree in International & Intercultural Studies with a focus on the cultures of Africa and the Middle East. Her pursuit of ceramics was born out of her studies in African art and pre-colonial African societies, and an interest in learning how ritual objects and spatial design elevate experiences. She often travels throughout Africa from Morocco to Ethiopia to meet with communities upholding ancient methods of craft, and to research the use of objects in ceremonial traditions. During her time in Cayman, Satti explored her burgeoning interest in furniture-making, using paper clay dyed with charcoal and turmeric to create prototype tables for the hotel’s lounge.
