William Edwards Studio

By Appointment Only
Moreno Valley, CA 92551
United States


William Edwards received his BFA in sculpture from San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA from UC Davis. While at SFAI he became fascinated with glaze chemistry and by the time he started at UC Davis he had eliminated all subject matter from his work. Painterly, glazed ceramic slabs have dominated his work ever since.
William produces hand made one of a kind ceramics that explore the alchemy of ceramic materials. Glazes create textured fields of color often reminiscent of nature. The natural phenomenon of the glaze creates a chaotic surface of patterns. Through the inherent transmutation of chemicals the uncontrollable and unexpected occurs; instability creates a game of chance. Like a toss of the dice, a moment in time is captured. As a mark outgrows it's bound set by a brush, drips crawl and overtake a surface like oil slicks spreading over the ocean. Within the kiln, each glazed work comes alive, seaming to have an innate sense of purpose. Then in an instant, all is frozen. What is left is a window of chaotic patterns of uncertainty, irregularity and imperfection, a result of a vast shifting set of unique circumstances.
William’s work has been exhibited at multiple galleries, fine art fairs and museums. He has collectors located around the world, including; Dubai, South Korea, England, Canada and the US.
