Interview with silversmith Ndidi Ekubia

Metal artist Ndidi Ekubia was interviewed at her studio in London on 15th June 2006. Ndidi studied three dimensional design at Wolverhampton University before completing the MA in Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art. She has exhibited internationally and her work is represented in a number of galleries including Adrian Sassoon and the Metal Gallery. Working in beaten silver and copper Ndidi makes functional work such as jugs, wine coolers, goblets, beakers, vases and spoons.

Ndidi was interviewed as part of the 'Made in the Middle', a touring exhibition organised by Craftspace in partnership with Rugby Art Gallery and Museum. Ndidi is the first of three artists to be interviewed for a video which will accompany the exhibition when it launches on the 14th November 2006 at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.

Andy Horn, Exhibitions Officer at Craftspace was instrumental in setting up the interview and liaising with the NEVAC crew to make sure it all went smoothly.
