The Bouga Vessel is part of Ouga Bouga series of vessels to resemble a mix of historical ceramics from different parts of the world. Continuing her fascination with creation, Lilianna uniquely hand paints illustrations of an imagined scenario where creation at its cellular level is recorded by prehistoric man. These pictures take reference from cave paintings and forms done in instinct. Each piece will slightly differ in pattern. Colored bone china is used for the base and comes in three different colors; flesh, deep blue and celadon. Each vessel can stand alone as an art object or can be used for different kinds of functions.

Lilianna Manahan finished her Foundation Studies in Art and Design at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 2004 and completed her BFA Industrial design degree at the University of the Philippines. She later on worked with Kenneth Cobonpue as part of his research and Design team. In 2012, Lilianna began her own design practice under her own name, Lilianna Manahan and in 2014 was awarded as one of the six Rising Asian Talents at the first Maison et Objets Asia.
Her work has been described as alternately whimsical or industrial, depending on the objects she designs, utilizing materials that range from natural materials to ceramics, resins and metals, sometimes doing finishes herself. The size of her works and installations run from the minuscule to large-scale. Her work has been described as pieces that pay attention to details, whether in their functional or artistic elements.
Her recent project was a collaboration with glass blowers from the Czech Republic where she designed an array of sculptures and glass vessels. She continues to exhibit, create and express herself through products, objets d’art and site specific art installations.
