1976, United Kingdom
His creative practice starts by purposely placing clay under stress to reveal the natural tension and movement in its surface and form. Throughout the whole making process, he pushes, pulls, compresses and slices the material to provoke a reaction. The final forms are a combination of these making scenarios, translating a theme of duality in their appearance – the contrast of visual distortion and precision, the stillness and movement in form and the surface deception between synthetic and natural.
Edwards has exhibited his work at premiere contemporary design and craft shows including British Ceramics Biennial, London Craft Week, London Design Festival, Paris Design Week and Homo Faber in Venice. He has also made large-scale outdoor installations, including From Humble Beginnings as part of the Surrey Unearthed Arts Council funded project at the Watts Gallery. He has work within the permanent collections of Chatsworth House, home of the Devonshire family.
