Lot 10


Ndidi Ekubia. A contemporary Britannia silver jug, London, 2006, Ndidi Ekubia, of botryoidal form with hand hammered finish, the rounded body to an undulating, curved handle, 16.5cm high, approx. 30cm long, approx. weight 26.8oz


Provenance: The Hamme Collection 


Note: Ndidi Ekubia uses traditional silversmithing techniques to create visually arresting, functional silverware. Her method is founded on the idea of pushing sheet metal to its limits and she is known for her large, sculptural vessels with a tactile quality and a vital, fluid appearance. Born in Manchester to Nigerian parents, her inspiration stems from a combination of the British urban landscape and her African cultural heritage, which gives a formal drama and a richly textured surface quality to her silver. Her Sparkle Vase became part of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s permanent collection in 2013 and her work is represented in many public and private collections including The Ashmolean, The Pearson Silver Collection and The Goldsmiths' Company Collection.
