Richard Erickson is a self taught sculptor and his early efforts included wood carvings of whimsical topics. After encouragement by family and friends, he decided to offer his efforts for sale, and through an evolutionary process has gravitated from wood offerings to stone products. He has been working in stone almost exclusively since 2010 and has taught himself (through trial and much error) to shape and polish granite, marble, and limestone. Each piece is unique in shape, and all include a very labor intensive edge treatment. Every item is individually assessed for artistic value prior to being offered for sale, so you are guaranteed his best efforts at a reasonable price. Your purchase is evidence that you share Richard's sense of beauty and art.
