Volcano Art Center Featured Artists

Clapp, Ed

Ed is a sculptor who works in traditional materials, such as wood and bronze, but he always keeps an eye out on dump runs and at garage sales for unusual objects to incorporate into his mixed media work.

After graduating with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Ed moved to California and got his MFA in Sculpture from San Jose State University. He taught for awhile, worked in both large and small museums installing exhibits, and assisted renowned Hawai’i artist (and current Volcano resident), Randy Shiroma when he was creating monumental sculptures commissioned for public places in the Bay Area.

Ed recently moved to Volcano and was out doing odd jobs around town when he was tapped for joining the VAC’s first artist collaboration event.
