With the combination of both artistic vision and industry leading metalworking abilities, Ricardo Churchill is able to take his own ideas and design concepts through to physical production seamlessly, incorporating the material processes themselves as an integral feature of his work. Heavily influenced by platonic solids and sacred geometry, each piece is a fusion of science and aesthetics, alchemised from base metal.
Ricardo’s background in science and engineering is reflected in the detail and precision of his work as a sculptural artist. As a teenager he was torn between his passion for fine art, achieving full marks 600/600 at A-Level, and natural talents for maths and the physical sciences. After graduating with a masters degree in mechanical engineering, Ricardo started his own logistics business, which he successfully ran until his late 20s. In 2018, he reconnecting with his passion for creativity and working with his hands, and having largely taught himself how to fabricate and work with metal, Ricardo began producing and publishing pieces, and the popularity of his designs and craftsmanship quickly grew.
Currently working from his boat workshop on England's waterways, Ricardo has been able to take a step back from the regular demands of modern life, slow down and reconnect with nature, feeding his ongoing drive to embody spirituality in both his life and work.
