I discovered Cyrus Kabiru's C STUNNERS on Maker Faire Africa 2010 and instantly fell in love!

From Maker Faire Africa's site:

Meet the makers of Maker Faire 2010

Maker Faire Africa is a celebration of African ingenuity, innovation and creation. Here you will find the Makers who showed their work at the 2010 event in Nairobi Kenya. Work ranges from time saving devices for agriculture to alternative energy sources from design with recycled objects to social media applications for mobile phones. Per maker you will find a short synopsis of their work, their contacts details plus a possibliity to collaborate with them. Match your skills with one of the Makers.

Cyrus is a self taught painter and sculptor. This glasses series have no glass but are made with found objects. Each has its own story. The artistic series of once off pieces is inspired by his father who once broke his own glasses and refused to fix them.
