Materials, processes, and techniques are very important in my work. I have been fascinated by the endless possibilities of metal and glass right from my childhood, watching and helping the Artisans with their creations in the rich and vibrant Yoruba culture.

I experiment and developed my own metal alloys which I mix with glass and kiln cast into art form.

My work is an abstract sculptural forms and functional art that explore the connection of humans within their surroundings in public spaces; both in scale, texture, colour and light. I use ancient and modern techniques to create aesthetic pieces of artwork.

Details about work or recent projects

The Abstract Colour pieces are made using the techniques of lost wax casting, core casting and mix of different metal alloys. Great part of the pieces are left unpolished in order to touch and feel the tactile texture of the artwork.
