About RichardFBurns

Sales 206
On Etsy since 2012

I am a UK based artist, jeweller and object-maker working from my studio in Dorset.

I was raised in New Zealand and Australia where I developed a strong connection to the natural world. I have travelled extensively and it is these experiences which have greatly influenced my work. Recent trips to Myanmar and Cambodia have continued to inspire me. I am also influenced by archaeological antiquities and European history. I gain much inspiration from visiting museum collections as well as observing the beauty of nature and the Natural World.

In essence, my work is an interpretative emotional response to the human condition and its interaction with nature. I work in oils, gold leaf, silver, bronze and mixed media, using traditional methods and techniques but reinventing them from a contemporary viewpoint with a symbolic narrative. I am attracted to the integrity and permanence of such materials and therefore my work has a hand-made tactile quality to it. The images in my galleries reflect a selection of my current work and processes and can be seen in my three disciplines - Paintings, Jewellery and Sculpture. All precious metal items are hallmarked at the Goldsmiths' Company London Assay Office where my hallmark is registered.

My works are held in private collections, in the UK and overseas and I have exhibited in both group and solo shows in Australia and New Zealand.
