Creator of Edge Sculpture
Edge Sculpture has evolved and developed significantly over the past eight years or so from its humble beginnings in my garden shed in damp old England. However, I am going back over twenty years when initially in my head I had the concept for a range of bold and primeval pieces, that although having a soul and presence, had very much a primitive and natural finish to them. My first piece was actually a Bull Terrier Head, a subject which I was very familiar with from the collectibles scene as Creative Director of Robert Harrop Designs Ltd. This enabled me to best demonstrate this new style of work to an existing audience with the firm belief that nothing proves the validity of an idea better than to actually physically sculpt one and most certainly the best way to gauge opinion. Another huge factor was that I wanted to create a style of work that could actually be put into production that not only retained all of the integrity of a Fine Art Statement Piece, yet also deliver it to the customer at a more affordable 'everyman and everywomen' prices.
Retaining the look and feel of work that delivers a visual statement with far higher perceived values has certainly been key to the growing success of Edge Sculpture. The engagement and the commitment towards the range, both in the United Kingdom and now increasingly in mainland Europe has demonstrated just how flexible the collection is by the true variety of Stockists we have. They range from Gift Shops and Jewellery Boutiques, Garden Centres and Furniture Stores, and now increasingly Galleries. I am also very proud that Edge Sculpture has also found particular success in Zoos. From a location standpoint, it has also become apparent that stockists are finding great success whether they are coastal or inland, meaning that the coverage and representation for Edge, literally stretches across the whole of the UK.
