Price (UK 1959) completed his art studies
at the Polytechnic School of Art and Design in North
Staffordshire, England and thereafter at the Rietveld
Academy in Amsterdam. Richard Price established his
glass studio in Amsterdam in 1985. Having received
recognition as a major master glass blower, he is
widely collected throughout Europe. His exhibited
glass art is made by the lost wax casting technique,
where the glass melts in a plaster cast mould. Sometimes
he creates a combination of both technics. His inspiration
comes from frequent travels to Thailand and Buddhism.
He wants to show the vulerability of the adroable.
the work of the horses head surrounded by a thorn
bush gives a good example. Man and animal are presented
in a manner where emotion as metaphor is well visible.Translucent
colours in the glass accent the motifs placidity.
Price is also the master glassblower for some artists
in The Netherlands
