Oxidised Beaker by Francisca Onumah


A beautiful oxidised copper beaker. Working with sheet metal, Francisca layers repeated hammered marks and textile patterns with different mark making techniques. Figurative vessels and objects are formed using various fabrication techniques.

Dimensions: 9.5cm (H) x 5.3cm (dia)

Drawn to finding character and a human-like semblance in inanimate objects, the Ghanaian born silversmith creates ambiguous vessels and jewellery that reflect vulnerabilities and strengths through their anthropomorphic forms.
