EDWARD CHIWAWA

A first-generation artist, Edward was born in Guruve, Zimbabwe, in 1935. He spent his childhood as a hunter and then as a carpenter. Edward began sculpting in the early 1970s and with the help of Tom Bloomfield, founder of the Tengenenge Sculpture community, he became one of Zimbabwe's top artists. He later joined the National Gallery as a member, practicing sculpting for more than 20 years. His works can be seen displayed in Galleries and Museums worldwide in countries like Germany, USA, Canada, Britain, Holland, Asia, France and the rest of Europe. His work is in collections worldwide.

ABOUT THE STONE:

Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.
