She has since been exploring the versatility of clay as a tool of communication and a witness to being. She bagged the Dr Pius Okigbo prize for Technical Proficiency at LIMCAF 2022.

Olúbùnmi’s carved pieces have been shown in galleries in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and the United States. She currently works from her studio in Lagos, Nigeria.
