Richard is a Cheshire based artist working from a home studio

He is inspired by the opportunities provided by juxtaposing both glass and wood to create integral pieces that harmonise and enhance the individual effects of both.The solid and elemental feeling created by hardwoods such as Oak and Ash combine with the ephemeral effect of light passing through glass to create both contrast and harmonic balance.He works within both the traditional art of stained / leaded glass, making pieces in the same manner as they have been for centuries, as well as creating new effects by fusing glass and metal together in the kiln
