Luce Artist Quote

“I work by myself and have had no actual training in ironworking. I feel this is somewhat essential to my approach and development of my own style.” Artist’s statement


Luce Artist Biography

Richard Horosko-Manderbach studied at the Tuscarora Pottery School in northeastern Nevada during the late 1960s. There, he first encountered ironworking and other metalsmithing techniques that he refers to as “the fire arts.” The artist likes the “plasticity” of the iron and the “immediacy” of the forging process, and counts the art nouveau ironwork of Antoni Gaudi and Victor Horta, as well as African art, as his strongest influences.
