OBA + OLORI CERAMIC SCULPTURES = IKORODU KINGDOM

 

This ceramic collection was formulated in honour of the King, and Queen of the Ikorodu Kingdom in Lagos, Nigeria. Each design element was used to celebrate, and symbolism the responsibilities of leadership, and the lineage of ceramic arts, and master artist in the local area. This appreciation for the history of anthropological research in the arts, and royal symbolism created the design components used to formulate contemporary relief carvings, and design motifs that act to encapsulate artistic traditions using the alchemical process of mineral solidification in fire.
