For over 30 years in engineering and design Richard was looking for an outlet for his creativity.  He attended Birmingham University Art college where he found freedom to create...well, everything!

Richard spent 4 years working in many natural materials formulating his views before returning to metal to develop ways of working which still allowed the freedom to realise ideas into 3D concepts. Richard has always thought how fluid it was to work with clay and the technique he uses on his latest sculpture - Murmurations – feels like moulding metal.

Richard's work is inspired by the forms and beauty in nature seemingly effortlessly created, as a consequence his work fits into an outdoor setting comfortably.
