Ezra Bailey was born in Manchester in 1983. In 2005 he gained a BA in Fine Art (Sculpture) at Bretton Hall, University of Leeds. To extend and deepen his understanding of working with stone, he completed a stonemasonry course in York, gaining a distinction.
Ezra is now based in London, working predominantly in Carrara marble, serpentine and slate. His work focuses on the natural qualities of the material, exploring fragility and strength, and often passing light through a piece to emphasise its innate properties.
