Dylan Eddy

Dylan Eddy grew up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, USA. He majored in Jewellery + Metals at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) in Calgary, Alberta, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2012. He is now a practising artist working out of his home studio, in Cleveland Heights. Dylan has taught Continuing Education jewellery classes, as well as jewellery workshops in Canada and the United States. His work has been exhibited across Canada, the US, and Japan.
Dylan draws inspiration from a variety of sources, ranging from archaeological and historic works, to epic literature, such as Beowulf, and the Lord of the Rings, to space exploration and cosmology. Influenced by Celtic, Norse, and Japanese aesthetics, Dylan works with ideas related to the passage of time, and identity. He explores these themes through various artistic practices, including: jewellery + metals, textiles, drawing, and painting. Dylan integrates the values of enduring quality and the authenticity of hand-made work into all his pieces.
Dylan produces all of his work by hand, using traditional techniques. He believes in the importance of maintaining these practises, especially as automation, and now artificial intelligence continue to encroach on, subvert, and, dominate the creative industries. There is a danger that the creativity, and skills of traditional artisans will be lost, or greatly diminished.
