Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This piece is part of the ~Fold~ series of ceramic sculptures that explore combinations of duality – distortion and precision. It has been developed from an ongoing interest of applying fixed processes to making that places clay under stress in an attempt to reveal tension and movement in both the surface and form.

This piece is created by following the specific steps of the making process – Repetition, Compression, Fold and Cut. Similar to pottery production throwing, batches of air tight clay spheres are created with incised lines and surface texture. Each sphere is compressed, releasing the air pressure and stacked one on top of the other. The stack is then cut through using a press and a cylinder cutting tool. The cut is a quick swift action that forces further distortion to the stacked forms and creates an opposing precise interior surface in reference to a vessel.

This piece is comprised of two components: Compressed layer stack collar and white vessel insert.

Artist Profile

Born: 1976

Hometown: London

Based in: London

Steven Edwards is a Ceramic Artist based in London with a background in Graphic Design. He completed a postgraduate (MA) of ceramics from the University for the Creative Arts in 2018. He has exhibited his work at premiere contemporary ceramic 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.
