The first cast rings Richard made were sculpted in very soft clay-like wax. He had done a lot of clay sculpture and the transformation from soft wax to hard metal enthralled him. Richard uses hard wax now, but getting that ‘thumbed’ feel gives it a very hand-made finish that rebels slightly from the machined rings out there. It also makes it slightly more interesting to play with and makes the light dance over it nicely. This is really good for the subtle but personal rings as each ring has its own undulations.
