Jon Edgar

Jon Edgar trained at The Frink School of Sculpture and his teaching considers the close observation of the individual to allow expressive portrait heads.

His use of improvisation allows the unforeseen to enter his carvings which are turned through their working process until a narrative appears.

He has work in collections in the UK and abroad, including stone sculptures in public view at Lewes, on the South Downs at Slindon and at the Devil's Punch Bowl, Hindhead.
