Richard’s stunning work includes decorative and utilitarian wooden bowls, vases, lidded vessels and sculptural objects made on the lathe and/or by carving.  Evolving from a hobby in the early 1990s to a serious pursuit since he retired from a career in chemistry research in 2005, his work aims to reflect both the skills of the craft and an aesthetic response to the character of the wood.  He obtains most of his wood locally from storm-felled or otherwise unwanted trees. Richard’s work today will feature our beloved Ash.
