Born in the UK
Avril Elward's inspirations for her sculptural objects are developed out of a formal interest in colour and materiality. Fascinated by manmade materials she takes their fundamental design and usage and changes its appearance to create a new object that suggests a playful questioning of the urban and the natural versus the synthetic and organic.
