See Adaesi Ukairo at MADE London
MADE London - Tutton & Young's flagship Design and Craft Fair - returns after a three year break with with over 100 of the UK's best makers, working in a huge variety of mediums.
We'll be introducing a few of them over the coming weeks. Head over to the MADE website to see the full lineup.
This week we introduce Adaesi Ukairo who is a sculptural metal worker based in Hastings, East Sussex.
Adaesi shapes her sculptural forms from copper and brass, lifting each creation from flat sheets of metal using hammers and forming stakes. Working intuitively, she engages her metals unique properties of malleability and strength to create her one-off, highly textured and patinated forms.
Exploring in tangible form the fluid movement of energy, all four collections Miri, Crush, Phlat and Undule are abstract explorations, allowing space for individual imagination and interpretation.
What are your Influences and motivations?
I have a passion for making, for exploring and expressing the lived experience through my work, the movement in the energy of life.
What makes your work UNIQUE?
I’ve pushed at the boundaries of traditional Silversmithing to make sculptural works in copper and brass.
Adaesi will be at MADE London on 3-5th November at ‘The Block’ at Angel Islington, 10 White Lion Street, Islington, London N1 9PD. Join us. Book your advance tickets here.
