Edward Pearce (Pierce) was a prolific and able wood and stone carver, who worked on decorative sculpture for country houses and churches, for Wren s City churches (he made the wooden model of the copper dragon for the vane of St Mary-le-Bow), the Guildhall, St Paul s Cathedral, Hampton Court, several City Companies, and Clare College, Cambridge. His bust of Wren
(1673, Oxford, Ashmolean) shows him with a gift for the restrained Baroque current in England, and a ready eye for liveliness of character. There are works in the Royal Collection, Windor, London and Yale.
