Richard Goldsworthy

Richard Goldsworthy graduated from ECA in 2019 his sculptural works exploring wood involve charing, hand-carving, and bleaching. 

‘By burning, carving and casting the wood, I create contrasting patterns that highlight and transform the shape and surface. I choose to celebrate the defects created by these actions such as my markings, and expose the ones caused by nature such as knots, cracks and ageing...’⁣ Richard Goldsworthy

Tomoko Miyauti


Life moves on and it has now been some years since I was making this blog to supplement and inspire furniture students. Every so often I still find gems that I want to share with woodworkers and today it is the work of Japanese artist Tomoko Miyauti who makes bowls and then decorates them beautifully with pyrography.
