Richard bought his portable aluminum smelter to In:Site in 2016 for a dramatic casting workshop.

Watch Richard’s video to find more about their In:Site commission and read an extract from the blog below.

Richard brought along his handmade portable smelting workshop to In:Site!

Together with assistant David, Richard used his machine to make aluminium casts from clay moulds. The public was invited to join in and create their own moulds inspired by their surroundings which would then be cast and displayed in the Square.

The artist holds a casting and the mould it was made from. The mould was taken from the environment.

Richard’s Instagram shows that he’s transferred his creative skills to the prosthetics industry.
