Daryl Richardson

Daryl Richardson (Saskatoon, SK) has worked in many areas of craft throughout his career. His primary medium is forged metal, but he is comfortable working with any material that allows his ideas to come to fruition. He has always been interested in form and how it relates to its surroundings, inspired by nature and its inhabitants. Daryl’s work borrows from the past, but with a modern flair breaking down the lines to a suggestion of the idea.

"A number of years ago I was fortunate enough to have discovered the remarkable properties of hot metal. I remain amazed that such a cold, rigid material can become fluid and malleable with the application of heat. This has opened up a world of discovery for me as I push the material and myself to new limits. I hope my work will evoke in others this same sense of discovery."
