Behind the Studio Doors | Henry Richardson MRSS
with Isabel de Vasconcellos
Behind the Studio Doors is a new programme of talks with international members of the Royal Society of Sculptors, chaired by curator and writer Isabel de Vasconcellos. Whilst the doors at Dora House are closed, glimpse behind the scenes at 8 of our members' studios around the world, from Ecuador and the USA to Ukraine and Italy.
For our fourth event on Wednesday 20 April at 6.30pm, Isabel will be talking with sculptor Henry Richardson MRSS.
Henry Richardson innovated a method of chiselling and bonding enormous sheets of plate glass into monumental, yet ethereal, crystalline forms, a method which he continues to refine. He attended Haverford College where he studied geology and art. This background in both art and science informs his creative process and mastery of chiselling glass, an industrial material not often explored artistically.
Henry divides his time between New York City and a studio in Tyringham, MA in the Berkshires.
