Meet the Artist: Robert Richter
Since adolescence, Robert Richter has been fascinated by the creative and artistic possibilities presented by wood. Throughout his career as a surgeon, he continued to pursue this craft. Now retired from his medical practice, he is rarely far away from his tools and collection of woods. The substance and grace of his works derive not only from their carefully proportioned shape, but also from the polished beauty of the fine woods he employs.Learn More
