Matt's Venus is sometimes mistaken for a Medusa with her contemporary block-style hair

      Height: 38 cm
      Width: 32 cm
      Depth: 17 cm
      Weight: 7 kg

      Traditionally designed in clay by our local sculptor Matt Buckley, then hand-cast from a special blend of marble stone and hand-painted in studios here in Shropshire

      We love that they're hand-painted - all with the same character but very slightly different

      Frequently asked questions

      What are Edge Sculptures made of?

      Edge sculptures are made of ceramic polystone which is a mix of crushed marble with resin to bind it all together

      Where are they made?

      They're designed by our local sculptor Matt Buckley and made here in Shropshire, just up the road from our Gallery

      How do I clean them?

      We'd recommend gently cleaning with a soft feather or synthetic duster to keep your sculpture looking at its best

      Can I keep them outside?

      Yes you can as they're frost-proof - HOWEVER they're not protected from the effects of weather (sun, rain, snow, etc) which can change them over time ... and don't forget the risk of pets and young children!

      Are they unique?

      Each piece is cast in a mould based on Matt Buckley's original sculpture - they're then hand finished, including fettling and painting, so each piece will be ever so slightly different

      Some of Matt's sculptures are numbered or limited editions - you'll find details on relevant pieces

      Where should I buy Edge Sculpture?

      Here at Artworx of course 😊

      We're Matt's hometown stockist for Edge Sculpture and it’s a real passion for us - as you can see from our reviews we offer the best customer service available

      • Design

        Matt Buckley is the Creative Director and designer of the stunning Edge Sculpture range - he initially sketches then sculpts each new piece out of clay, perfectly blending structure with strength to produce a prototype full of charm and character

      • Cast

        The prototype is used to create a rubber mould, marble resin is poured into the mould which is then lowered into a vacuum chamber to remove unwanted air bubbles - once cured and hardened, the cast is carefully removed to reveal the first white sample

      • Paint

        After unwanted mould lines have been removed, the sample is levelled and sand-blasted to give it a slight key - it's then painted to produce a master against which all future production sculptures will be compared

        A masterpiece has been created
