He has also worked with and for some of the greatest glass and non glass artists including Jane Rosen, Preston Singletary, and Dale Chihuly.
For the majority of his career, Ross Richmond's work has focused mainly on the figure with the idea of expressing movement in a still object, but also capturing a moment, a gesture, a quiet interaction between people or an individual and their thoughts.
The inspiration to create these pieces was the idea of expressing movement in a still object, but also capturing a moment, a gesture, a quiet interaction between people or an individual and their thoughts in a contemplative manner.
The figure has always played a major role in my work, and in this series I am moving away from replicating the anatomy of the torso, and breaking down the human form into it's basic shape represented as a robed figure. This keeps the eye from focusing on the details of the anatomy and lets the viewer follow the sweeping gestural lines of the form, using the energy and sense of motion to create visual tension.
