Michael Eden

Michael Eden is a maker whose work sits at the intersection of craft, design and art, exploring contemporary themes through the redesign of historical, culturally familiar objects utilising digital manufacturing and materials

Through this he investigates the relationship between hand and digital tools. He is particularly interested in how the tacit knowledge and sensibility to the three dimensional object, developed through extended ceramic practice can affect and influence the approach to the creation of objects using digital technology.

As a member of a unique generation that has bridged the digital divide, he firmly believes that he is able to contrast and compare life before and after the invention of the personal computer. For him it is a matter of choice, as life at the beginning of the 21st century has furnished makers with a wider choice of tools, materials and processes with which to realise ideas and concepts. All have their place, the new does not replace the old; the key is to make appropriate use of them.

Having attracted wide media and public attention, his work is exhibited internationally and acquired by a growing number of international art galleries and collectors. Michael is represented by Adrian Sassoon.
