Dawson Edwards

Dawson strives for one thing in his art; honesty. After spending a lot of time during the pandemic in front of a screen, Dawson now aims to continue experimenting with his hands and stoneware clay to create beautiful pieces of handheld domestic wares which allow him to reconnect with nature.

Dawson began his work with an interest in disrupting the base norms of domestic vessels. Changing the form would impact the function of the vessel in turn offering a different experience when used. However, while learning the basics of throwing on a pottery wheel, Dawson found comfort in simply working with clay which evolved into a deeper meditative process leading to a deeper connection to the work he makes. It was in this process that Dawson understood that art does not need to be overly complicated for it to be meaningful.
