Richards pots reflect the spontaneity of the slipware tradition of decorating with coloured clays on semi-dry pots.
He has found an inspiration from the Impressionists such as Matisse and Cezanne, also colourists like Hodgkin. But his background influence is the pattern and design found in folk art from Eastern Europe.
Richard uses Terracotta clay and fires his pots in a gas kiln to 1120c.
Feeling the love
We spent some time looking for someone who could produce some solid wooden frames to mount our medals in. James, listened carefully to what we wanted and made us the exact high-quality frame we needed. Since then, we re-order every couple of weeks including some complex bespoke frames. We have been working together for about 10 years and I couldn’t recommend The Framing Centre highly enough.
Artmill Gallery & Framing Centre are our go to framers for The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth. They have a particular empathy for artists requirements and always produce work to the highest quality. Many of our exhibiting artists have been so impressed with the outcome that they go on to use Artmill for all their work.
