From his custom handmade kiln to his incredible backyard studio, Richards entire process is in a league of its own. After photographing a few pieces for an exhibition, our friendship grew as we collaborated to capture everything from pottery and sculpture to macro textures and process. Sifting local clay, to scavenging discarded wood, to sculpting his unique pieces, the experience is always a delight.
The work displayed here is byproduct of several years and aims to shed light on the work of this amazing artist and incredible neighbor!”
