More than an assemblage artist, John Richards of Yummy Mud Puddle
fame is also a maker of lights. Whimsical lights that light up the night
with humor.John was born in 1936 (gosh he looks good for an old man) in Fond
Du Lac Wisconsin (where the @%#* is that?). His mother was an artist
& his father a writer. Due to circumstances beyond his control, he
moved to Chicago IL, Glens Falls NY, Pelham Manor NY & Saint Just
Puerto Rico by the time he was ten.
He received a BA in English from Union College in
Schenectady NY & taught English, Spanish & Art for four long
years. In 1963 he quit his job, moved to NYC, took various courses at
Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and began his freelance Art career. He has
been creatively unemployed ever since.Currently, his imagination runs wild in Burnsville, NC.
Sometimes a room needs a little light, and lots of personality. John's lamps will force a smile out of you 'cause they are just so darn much fun.
Presented for your amusement, a dog. Created with vinyl-ized (is that really a word?) paper over a wire frame. Really a sculpture that happens to light up. U.L. approved lighting fixture. Cord off and on switch. Every sculpture is handmade & therefore unique. Something really cool for the dog people.
Measures about 17.5" tall to top of tail, 17" to top of head. Body is about 12" long. About 19" wide and 6" deep. I took a bunch of photos, including some that will show John's witty musings.
