Angela Edwards

Angela lives rurally running a 4000-acre grazing property near Yetman NSW as well as her and her husband’s camping business on the river. She can often be found working on her verandah, surrounded by pets, birds and her beautiful garden and, within this space, she likes to just go with the flow and is never quite sure what is going to turn up! Her love of working with clay began around 10 years ago after completing a sculpting class, before studying art at TAFE and participating in many clay workshops to discover her own unique style. The techniques used to create her beautiful works include slab, coiling and wheel throwing and her style has a relaxed, rustic and organic feel with a rewarding focus on both functionality and beauty. Angela often works intuitively with the clay, not always having an outcome in mind but letting the clay piece evolve to take on its own form. “There is no better feeling than to take a lump of clay and through many processes, turn it into something functional and beautiful.” It is this unique style that has enabled Angela to have her works exhibited in Goondiwindi, Texas, Inverell, Moree, Taroom, and a number of local galleries and shops across Australia.
