MA Glass and Ceramics | Class of 2020

I want to develop ways of using recyclable materials, making them into beautiful wearable objects and furniture for the home. I am from Nigeria with a background in science, environmental biology and scientific glass blowing. I have aimed at making the present work unique, using my waste recycling research. I am scientifically trained and the manual activity of recycling has never interested me; it has always been the connections or correlations within which a craft object can be created that interests me. I integrate the day-to-day, real-life act of recycling into art. My recyclable craft work is created with simple techniques making them wearable with good sensual perceptions.
