    About The Work

    Enrich your home with color, history, and culture.

    Yinka Ilori’s graphic and brightly-hued set of two OMI PLATES is inspired by the Yoruba word “omi” meaning “water”.

    Looking at the history of London's Royal Docks and the deliveries of Caribbean barrels of rum, sugarcane, coffee, tobacco and so much more, this colorful artwork celebrates the exchange of cultures and the oceanic routes the ships would sail. Note the orange ripples set upon a deep blue background and the contrasting barrel-shaped details – each referencing the historic moment and time.

    Yinka Ilori has teamed up with a small supplier in Portugal on a collection of stoneware tableware. Individually hand-finished, each piece is hand-molded for a slightly irregular, organic shape, contrasting the precise, geometric elements of the artwork. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, there may be slight imperfections which adds to the charm of the item.

    Complete the set with the matching set of two OMI BOWLS
