Virginia Richards Artist, potter, sculptor

My pottery is mainly domestic ware in bright, bold designs and quirky sculptures - not always based on reality.

I also make lampbases to commission.

In addition to pottery, I am also a painter working mainly in oils and mixed media.

My paintings most often feature landscapes, still life, quirky people and animals though recently I have done a series of portraits.

I exhibit in various galleries, shops and events such as Devon Open Studios and Wonderworks.


DEVON OPEN STUDIOS 2020

This year`s event will take place Saturday 12th - Sunday 27th September 2020.

Do join me, Thalia Smallwood and Jane Collins in my studio at Woodlands House, Murchington, Chagford where we will be showing paintings in oils, acrylic and pastel, cross stitch samplers, bright pottery, quirky sculptures of people and bulls, and decorated lampshades. These exhibits will also be for sale.
