- Completely self-taught, Edwards sculptures are created out of his passion for the vitality, energy and grace of his subjects. His passion lies with African and Equestrian wildlife, sculpting animals with distinct features that carry a powerful presence. Following the ancient lost-wax method, Edward works first in clay, moulding the animal with his hands, creating the rough texture you can see in the final sculpture. This personal touch adds character to the animals and makes them come alive for the audience. Edward then casts in bronze and in silver for limited editions. This age-old process demands both skill and time, and after several months of work, his finished sculptures bring the true nature of the wildlife into our everyday lives.Edwards sculptures feature in distinguished public, corporate and private collections around the world, including a commission for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
