Ndidi Ekubia MBE

Born 1973 Manchester, England

"I am excited by the sensual and rich forms that can be created by the rhythmic process of making and believe my nature is reflected through my work.  It is delightful to be absorbed in every stage, from design to the finished piece."

Ndidi Ekubia creates visually stimulating yet functional silverware. Her method of making is founded on the idea of pushing sheet metal to its limits. The hand-finished, planished surfaces emphasise the fluid vitality of each form.  The inherent quality of the work allows the viewer to become involved with a truly three-dimensional object, each side showing a completely different aspect.
