Speaking about the collaboration, Kasem said, "I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience of being part of the Rolls-Royce Art Programme. From visiting Goodwood, the home of the marque and taking inspiration from their master craftspeople, to working with the Rolls-Royce design team on the concept for a Wraith incorporating key elements of my work and ultimately, allowing me to create a metal sculpture for the first time."
