"My pieces are typically narrative, working mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects. Much of my current work is influenced by man's relationship with nature, as well as his impact upon nature. I find faces and hands to be very beautiful and expressionistic, a source of silent communication, and I use gestures and titles to help convey an overall story. My pieces are usually about communication with self or between others." -Ross Richmond

Ross Richmond Statement

“My pieces are typically narrative, working mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects. Much of my current work is influenced by mans’ relationship with nature, as well as his impact upon nature. I find faces and hands to be very beautiful and expressionistic, a source of silent communication, and I use gestures and titles to help convey an overall story. My pieces are usually about communication with self, or between others. All of my work is blown and hot sculpted, meaning that nothing is cast or mold blown, all pieces are made by hand while hot on the pipe in the glass shop. First I establish the main shape of the piece, then allow the glass to cool working it in a colder state so that I have a more “solid core” to work from. If the piece is too hot the shape will distort as the details are brought out. I use a small oxygen-propane torch for all the detail work, which allows me a greater variety of flame shapes and sizes to work with. Heads are typically blown, whereas all hands are solid. With a blown shape I am able to inflate areas or “suck” areas in as needed. Hands are made solid so the delicate fingers do not collapse or distort. All colors are applied in layers of glass powders and the finished piece is coated with an acid to remove the shine for a matte finish.”
