Worshipful Company of Turners

SDC Fellow Joey Richardson is made Renter Warden of the Worshipful Company of Turners

We are delighted to learn that Joey Richardson internationally acclaimed wood turner, sculptor and SDC Fellow has been made Renter Warden of the Worshipful Company of Turners. One of the oldest Livery Companies in the City of London, the Turners’ Company was already a guild in the 12th Century.

Her sculptures are held in numerous permanent and private collections. Inspiring others, Joey lectures and demonstrates her techniques globally. She has been awarded the prestigious QEST Award of Excellence (2015) and made a Court Assistant of the Turners Company (2018).

Nature and more specifically, wood, is the driving force in Joey’s sculptural practice. It informs her themes and guides her expressions. From 'memento mori' through 'mimesis' via a mischievous wit, her delicate wood forms and contemporary, mixed-media sculptures are moulded by and seek to encapsulate nature.
