Joey Richardson FSDC
Wood Carving & Turning
Joey works predominantly in the medium of wood using reclaimed local timber but often incorporates cast glass, metal and photography into her creations. Her unique sculptures are inspired by nature, life experiences and imagination drawn from her inner self.
As the passion of her heart meets the talents of her hands she personally sculpts each individual piece on a lathe, with the cutting, shaping and sanding all controlled with the eye. By adding new, innovative techniques: - piercing, colour, texture and artwork for greater originality- Joey developed her philosophical view of her work. She explores and illustrates stories through symbolic form and repeated motifs creating a soul for each unique artwork allowing the viewer to see into the life of the piece.
