Michael Eden‘s work sits at the intersection of craft, design and art. For this solo exhibition Eden, formerly a potter, explores contemporary themes through the reinterpretation of historical objects using digital means.
For this ambitious exhibition Michael Eden has created new pieces responding to objects from Waddesdon’s collections, displaying them in a theatrical setting in the Coach House Gallery at the Stables. These unique pieces are the result of technical innovation combined with extraordinary levels of skill using revolutionary tools and pushing materials and digital technology to their extremes. He describes how he has appropriated digital manufacturing processes: ‘Three-dimensional printing has given me the freedom to create works of art impossible with the wheel and clay’.
