Edge Sculpture is a collection influenced by style rather than subject. The mix of form, light and texture gives a unique feel to each individual piece. Each subject has been originally sculpted from clay, which allows the creation of pieces that deliver both a dynamic and organic feel. We then develop both the cases and moulds which ensure the faithful reproduction of the original clay sculpture with our special blend of marble stone castings. The finishing touch is the skilful application of hand-painting with the end result being a statement piece and talking point for anyone’s home!
Matt – The Designer and Sculptor
Matt Buckley started off his sculpting career over 25 years ago having been presented with 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 which have resided successfully to this day within the ‘giftware’ and ‘collectible’ industry for well over 30 years.
The licensed figurines that Matt has both personally sculpted and resided over include the Beano and Dandy, Camberwick Green, Roald Dahl, Bagpuss, 2000 AD, The Magic Roundabout, Mr Benn, Wallace and Gromit, Doctor Who and Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray, with many pieces being continually produced to this date.
Matt remains the Creative Director of Robert Harrop Designs Ltd and indeed the skills and ability to manufacture quality figurines from within their family run company in Shropshire has enabled this very new collection of work to become a reality and Edge Sculpture to thrive.
This is a very new collection and very much at the beginning of its creative evolution and Matt indeed looks forward to designing, sculpting and producing many new concepts well into the future.
