For over 40 years, working metal into imagined shapes, has been artist Richard Starks fascination. All the sounds, the sparks, the flames, and the smells of metalworking, are his spark to get started. Working with stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminum, has given him an appreciation for their characteristics, some similar, and some totally unique. Over thirty years of teaching metalworking techniques, and skills, has given him inspiration to create new sculptures. Richard has been displaying his works in Yountville for many years and is one of the town's top sellers of pieces right off of our Art Walk.
