Wooden lace by Joey Richardson
British artist and woodcarver Joey Richardson grew up surrounded by trees on a small farm within the heart of Twigmoor Woods in Lincolnshire, England, where her love for wood, nature, fauna and flora developed. Wood-turning is one of our oldest and most traditional crafts, which Joey feels passionate to keep alive. She teaches and gives demonstrations of turning, piercing, painting and texturing in the UK and the USA, inspiring others. Joey Richardson has exhibited her work at major exhibitions in the UK and the USA, including the prestigious SOFA expo in New York and Chicago. She has won many medals and prizes for her beautiful wood-turning, including awards in the Worshipful Company of Turners’ competitions.
“Professionally I feel very fortunate to be a female in what is essentially a man’s world of wood turning. My style incorporates both the more feminine – the delicate and beautiful – and the more masculine – the big and bold. Combined, these two aspects fully encapsulate and make the most striking use of wood’s tactile beauty”.
