Inspired by African heritage, Western innovation and research.
I am a designer-maker driven by material, process and techniques. I predominantly work with base and precious metals making thought provoking abstract sculptural form jewellery and objects that explore people relationships and connections within the surrounding of public spaces. I believe that our surroundings influence every aspect of our lives whether at home or in other variety of places.
Furthermore, like alchemist my curiosity of materials led me to explore the chemistry, parallel and fusion of metal and glass. I experiment and developed my own metal alloy which I successfully mix with glass and kiln-cast into art objects of abstract colour. The exploration and experimentation of materials and techniques not only allow me to be creative but it does also evoke my passion to make.
I use both ancient and modern techniques to create meaningful and aesthetic pieces of artwork.
It is my aspiration to engage the viewers with my work to form their own connections.
