Light Cover (wall)
‘This decorative wall light cover resembles a torch of yesteryear from Issa’s home of Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast, West Africa). It forms part of series as Issa plays with this torch theme. Light is projected upward against the wall as well as soft light through the decorative cuttings. Three of these are displayed here.
This piece is largely hand-crafted from mild steel, painted in a variety of colours and sealed. It integrates a piece of colorful glass made from recycled glass at the Kitengela Glass Studio in Nairobi, Kenya.
