Adaesi Ukairo – In the Window, August 2023

August 2023

Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair Showcase Award 2022


Our ‘In the Window’ spotlight exhibition for August 2023 features Adaesi Ukairo, who was selected for the Bluecoat Display Centre’s Showcase Award at the 2022 Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair.

Adaesi expresses in tangible form the fluid movement of energy. Shaping her sculptural forms from flat sheets of copper and brass, she uses hammers and forming stakes to mould and shape intuitively, engaging her metals unique properties of malleability and strength to create distinct, highly textured and patinated pieces.

Undule, Crush and Phlat are abstract explorations, allowing space for individual interpretation.

A curated selection of Adaesi’s work will be available to purchase from our online shop.
