Stephen Dee Edwards
Stephen Dee Edwards (1954– ) uses glass alongside other materials such as wood and metal to create sculptures that investigate light and color. He received a BA from San Jose University in 1978 and an MFA from Illinois State University in 1980, before establishing a studio in North Carolina and creating work at the Penland School of Crafts. Edwards eventually taught and built the hot-glass program at Alfred University in New York State (1988–2010). Edwards is a member and former president of the Glass Arts Society. He works full time in his California art studio, where he is inspired by the landscape.
