Luke Edwards

 

Luke has been playing with circus toys since he was in primary school.  What started as a three-ball cascade and 'walk the dog' with a yo-yo has now developed into solidifying three-diabolos and 5-clubs on single spins.

He grew up in Hobart watching and learning from jugglers both local and interstate, regularly attending circus festivals, meet-ups and conventions. He enjoys making his own equipment, such as diabolo sticks, juggling balls, devil sticks and sock poi.
