Samuel Edwards
Sam Edwards first learned to carve marble at the Tom Bass School of Sculpture by visiting Italian sculptor Usama Alnassar, in 2020, while working as a medical officer in an acute mental health unit. He works almost entirely with unpowered hammers and chisels and a piece could take anywhere from a few months to over a year to complete while he works as a doctor part time. His focus is on creating sculptures that are abstract whilst also being easy to relate to, drawing on the qualities of the marble itself to give the work real presence in the world and in the mind of the viewer.
