'Metal on Cast Glass'
Materials, techniques and processes 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. My work is influenced by urban and rural environment and human interactions within the public and open spaces. I paint or add metal onto my glass pieces to achieve a painterly colour and texture.
It's material that gives substance to everything we see and touch. The exploration and experimentation of materials, techniques, and processes not only allows me to be creative, but it does also evoke my passion to make.
I incorporate metal with glass to create an intrigue contrast, colourful, and textured body of work that engage with the audience.
