'Banded Black Convex Fold I' is a unique sculpture by the British artist Steven Edwards, created from black and dark blue parian porcelain.
Edwards purposely places his clay under stress to reveal the natural tension and movement in its surface and form. Pushing, pulling, compressing and slicing - his aim is to provoke a reaction from his material.
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.
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
