Eli Beke of Wedge and Edge Studio is a Torquay-based craftsperson. Self-taught, he creates pieces that are as visually compelling as they are functional. With a focus on developing practical forms, each piece is imbued with the maker's hand and designed to enrich the life of the owner.
Eli’s practice is influenced by Swedish and Japanese-carved household objects. He works predominantly with wood and metals, where he combines traditional woodcarving and timber joinery techniques, with modern metal fabrication. Eli’s former work as an electrical engineer has given him a practicable approach to his practice, while his extensive travels by bicycle across Asia in his 20s has left a lasting impact on his craft.
