TIMOTHY RICHARDS HISTORY
Timothy Richards is a small company, based in the beautiful Georgian City of Bath, England. Tim has been making sculptures of architecture in plaster for since 1988. All of the sculptures are made by hand by Tim and his small, dedicated team. The work is believed to be unique in the world today.
Plaster has permanence and is a beautiful and underrated material. It is the main material they use in making the sculptures. Additional materials used are etched brass, lead, white metal, glass and sometimes gold.
They have endeavoured through text and images to convey the scope of the sculptures, however their weight and other properties are difficult to convey in this way, they are much better than they look!
Central to the theme is that of architectural truth. Tim aims to use his love of architecture and model making skills to tell the story of architecture over the centuries.
Some of the sculptures are designed to be used as bookends. Others as stand alone collectors’ pieces. Of course it's entirely up to you how you use them (though not recommended as a door stop please!).
