Steven Edwards

Born: 1976

Hometown: Surbiton

Based in: London

 

Steven Edwards is a Ceramic Artist based in London. Having spent over 16 years as a Graphic Designer in leading London design agencies, he completed a postgraduate (MA) of ceramics from the University for the Creative Arts in 2018. He has exhibited his work at various UK shows including the British Ceramics Biennial, London Craft Week and London Design Festival.

His work investigates the language of making through the materiality of clay. Fascinated by process-led making, he uses simple tools and traditional techniques to explore unanticipated outcomes and revealing properties when clay is placed under tension. By applying specific steps to a making process and manipulating the clay’s limits, he attempts to create objects that reference a balance between handmade and mechanised mark making.

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.

About Steven Edwards


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I find inspiration from primary experiences, where ideas germinate from every aspect of day to day life, such as observing form and exploring materials within analogue and digital settings.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

The recurring creative process of my work involves a cycle of hand skilled techniques through touch, followed by destructive actions using specific tools. From sketchbook to final forms I explore processes that push, pull, compress and slice the medium to provoke a reaction – enabling scenarios to build from or record a moment in time.
