Mediums Used

Richard Thornton`s stainless steel modern contemporary sculptures are much in demand for public art and community projects, the work place, on the patio, on the terrace or parkland. Richard somehow captures the potential of the medium he works in with the genius of a light touch. When not sculpting he teaches degree courses.
