'Mami Wata' Chop YAM bronze fish hook
Drawing inspiration from anglers & the practicality of the fish hook on their hats, we decided to make our own using bronze.
Translating the artisan traditions & heritage techniques of African bronze making into a contemporary context, we started prototyping using the lost wax casting method in Benin City, Edo state, Nigeria & ended up in Dakar, Senegal.
