Infinite Folds by Steven Edwards
Edwards is a ceramic artist whose work investigates the language of making through the materiality and physicality of clay. Fascinated by process-led making, he uses traditional techniques that provoke unanticipated outcomes, using clay as a medium that sustains the narrative of the making process.
Initially discovering ceramics at the Royal Forest of Dean College, Edwards went on to study Applied Arts at the University of Derby and Graphic Design at Sheffield College. The latter gained him a distinction and a highly successful graphics career, however the allure of clay remained too strong and Edwards completed his MA in ceramics in 2018 at the University of Creative Arts, Farnham.
Edwards has exhibited his work at premiere contemporary design and craft shows including British Ceramics Biennial, London Craft Week, London Design Festival and Paris Design Week. 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.
