Steven Edwards

Born: 1976

Hometown: London

Based in: London

Steven Edwards is a Ceramic Artist based in London. Hi 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. The resulting forms embody his interaction and manipulation of the clay using bespoke tools to explore the intrinsic properties of the material.

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. His aim is to share the material/maker relationship with the viewer by creating artworks that display a common theme of construction, drawing attention to the implied movement recorded by the clay through handling it over a period of time.

Edwards has exhibited his work at premiere contemporary ceramic shows including the British Ceramics Biennial, London Craft Week, Paris Design Week and Homo Faber in Venice.
