A collection of faux hunting trophies created from bicycle components and found objects.
Growing up in rural Durham, from a young age, Richard had a keen interest in nature and wildlife in particular. As a born again cyclist, forever tinkering and updating his steed, he came to realize that the ergonomic shapes of certain bicycle components lent themselves to sculpture.

The ethos being that financially and environmentally art should not cost the Earth .
