We enjoy working with fine artists to support their requirements in glass for the resolution of their projects.
One such challenge involved creating glass sekere for Niyi Olagunju for an exhibition in London, titled ‘Music to the Eyes’. Traditionally used as percussion instruments, the artist has re-imagined these as contemporary sculpture in an endeavour to shift her focus from the aural to the visual within the aesthetic spectrum.
After discussing the shapes and final result desired, the glass pieces were handblown in our studio in several colours. Olagunju then adorned the items in the tradition of the sekere instrument.
