John D. Richards is a man of many talents, only one of which is creating 3-D art. John joined the Guild in 2005, and ever since then has been wowing us with his ability to turn anything into Something! From bugs he makes with used spark plugs, plastic bottles, and wire, to hanging fish sculptures made of cat food can lids, to tissue paper and wire lamps, John’s creativity abounds.

This free-standing lamp is made from layers (and layers) of glued tissue paper over a wire armature. it is colorful and full of very interesting messages and drawings. John doesn’t work from a mold; he starts bending and twisting wires until they look like, in this case, a livable shoe-house–each lamp is truly unique.

27 inches tall, 17 inches long, and 7 inches wide.

Artist statement included.
