Ayesha is an interdisplinary artist who employs aniconic symbol making as a methodology for articulating the aliveness of colonialism, matriarchal wisdoms and mythic futures through the surreal subversion of icons and objects. Their practice spans jewellery, sculpture, textile and 3D technology and adopts alchemic and sustainable processes poetic to the themes explored.

Ayesha recently completed a Metal and Jewellery Scholarship at Morley College, making mechanical sculptures in a collection called ‘the parable of protection’; through fold forming, patinations and moving elements that relate to the body through wear and speculative function.

In India I co-founded the Worshipful Company of Wandering Jewellers (WCWJ), an alternative ongoing, open archive documenting oral histories and voided knowledge highlighting the synchronicities between crafts, ecology and faith.
