Edward Waites was born in 1988 in Suffolk. Completely self-taught, Edward has dedicated himself to his craft since leaving school and despite his young age his distinctive sculpture has already earned him international recognition and acclaim.
Edward’s collection comprises of animals and wildlife and is shaped by his passion for the vitality, energy and grace of his subjects. His approach is very immediate and hands-on, and from very early on in his career he has worked closely with the foundry in Suffolk that casts his works. Following the ancient lost-wax method, Edward works first in clay, and then casts in bronze and silver in limited editions. This age-old process demands both skill and time, and each commission takes several months to complete.
Edward’s sculptures feature in distinguished public, corporate and private collections around the world, including several royal collections. Notable commissions include those for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, the ruling family of Dubai and Lord and Lady Bamford.
