Photographs of Daryl Richardson's recent work

Often times our work gets made just in time for an opening and we haven't had time to photograph them. This was the case with Daryl at the Spring Open House. The "Pods" are still available copper, with patina, and 23 carat gold leaf, on steel thorns. Sold

The Canoe is no longer available, materials, forged steel on Box Elder burl.

Blackstrap Art Studio Tour, May 28-29 2011

This weekend three of our members will be taking part in the Blackstrap Art Studio Tour. Ken Wilkinson and Paula Cooley at their pottery studio at Agar's Corner, #1 on the map. Daryl Richardson will have a forge going at Al and Joan Hiebert's Hot Shop, #2 on the map. The Studio Tour is a fun way to spend a day, and there will be lots of great craft, and demonstrations, the glass blowing is always a highlight.
