Edge Sculpture is a striking collection of contemporary sculpture. Emotionally evocative, fiercely modern, yet remaining utterly affordable.
Designed and sculpted by Matt Buckley
Designed and sculpted by Matt Buckley at his studios in Shropshire, the collection is influenced by style rather than subject. The mix of form, light and texture gives a unique feel to each individual piece. They are an eclectic mix of themes that have a collective ‘look’.
Each sculpt has been originally sculpted from clay. This allows the sculptor to be freer, giving the pieces that dynamic and organic feel. The finished clay sculpt ‘masters’ are then taken to be moulded and each subsequent piece will be carefully hand-cast from this moulding using marble polystone, which allows for the faithful reproduction of detail and texture applied to the original sculpt. The finishing touch is the skilful application of hand-painting and finishing, which brings the sculpt to life.
The early years
Matt started off his sculpting career over 20 years ago having been afforded the opportunity to hone his craft by following in the footsteps of his step father, Robert Harrop, by working on the ‘Country Companions’ and later named ‘Doggie People’ range. These have resided successfully to this day within the ‘giftware’ and ‘collectible’ industry for well over 25 years themselves.
Licensed figurines that Matt has both sculpted personally and directed include the Beano and Dandy, Camberwick Green, Roald Dahl, Bagpuss, 2000 AD, The Magic Roundabout, Mr Benn and Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray, with many pieces being continually produced to this date.
Matt Buckley’s skills and ability to manufacture quality figurines from within their family-run company in Shropshire has enabled this new collection of work to become a reality and Edge Sculpture to thrive.
