Zuza Mengham is a London based Artist and Designer. Heavily rooted in a preoccupation with materials, her work explores the join between the recovery of traditional crafts and the creation of her own new methods of making. From giant steel and neon chandeliers housing hanging plants to small geometric glassy sculptures, her work is seated within an atheistic of modernist abstraction.
She is currently working on a long term series of sculptures which explore ways of capturing elemental states using colour and manipulating the point of catalysis, which offers infinite possibilities for creating her unique gem-like structures. The series which explores synthesising particular materials such as powdered copper and slate, allows the natural density of each component or pigment to drop and rise creating spontaneously marbled colours.
