About

 

Uju Obi creates bespoke art for exceptional spaces.

Described as “ethereal” and “magical,” her work has been displayed in the V&A UK and Nesta UK.

Uju works with private clients, interior designers and architects to create spaces that captivate.

Working with a world-renowned glass studio founded over 100 years ago in Germany, Uju has the ability to create work to an architectural scale.

Uju’s work is about Light: transparencies, reflections and refractions. With a background in textiles, her work is inspired by ideas such as applique, beading and pattern design.

Continuously experimenting with the versatility of glass; techniques used vary from painting to fusing, resin lamination, sandblasting and/or water-jet cutting.
