Welcome to Edward Waites Sculpture
Edward’s work has earned him international recognition and acclaim at a young age. Best known for his representation of the animal form using his own unique and recognised style, he works in clay and casts in bronze and silver, in limited editions.
Completely self taught, his sculptures have been developed through time and practise. Edward’s collection comprises animals and wildlife. His works are influenced by his passion for the life and essence of his subjects. His aim is to capture their presence and character; emphasising muscle, sinew, energy and movement. Edward’s work ranges from small to life-size pieces and commissions for private and corporate clients.
Despite being very young, Edward has worked prolifically since leaving school and has created a career from his passion. His sculpture is collected worldwide with both public and private collections in the UK and internationally, including a number of Royal Families around the world.
Soon after starting his professional career Edward has worked very closely with the foundry in Suffolk that casts most of his work. From day one he has worked with a hands-on approach in terms of producing his work in metal and has built a positive relationship with the foundry-man with whom he works. The process is highly skilled and time consuming so the finished article takes months to create and each individual piece is bespoke in this age-old lost wax casting process.
