Ed Jones


Residency in Pietrasanta, Italy, 2013

“The Brian Mercer stone residency is a truly unforgettable experience. It guided me and my work in a new direction and opened my eyes to a traditional way of working which had become lost to my modern ideas about sculpture. Now I'm taking my new skill set from Italy and applying it to stone carving in the UK, opening up a whole new artistic pathway which I didn't envisage when I started.”
