In Ghana, brightly colored and patterned fabrics known as Kente cloth are used as part of their historical preservation. Ghanaian glass artist Anthony Amoako Attah recreates these same vibrant colors and patterns in his kiln formed glass art. The patterns are unique in the way that they are each created to celebrate individual events and people.
