Joey Richardson

Joey Richardson, an internationally acclaimed turner and sculptor, is renowned for her delicate and richly hued wood forms. She works predominantly in the medium of wood, but often incorporates cast glass, metal and photography into her creations. Born in 1964 in Lincolnshire, England, she grew up in the heart of Twigmoor Woods on a small farm, here, surrounded by trees, her love for wood, nature, fauna and flora developed.

Whenever possible Joey uses reclaimed local timber. 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, color, 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 so each of her unique artworks comes alive with their own story, as dreams, memories and passion are incorporated, allowing the viewer to see into the life of the piece.
