A former architect, Parrish’s eye for detail is evident in every piece of his unique fused, kilnformed and kiln cast glass works. His beloved Tapestry series is inspired by hand woven fabrics. Parrish composes linear patterns of glass strands creating intricate fiber like textures. His sophisticated glass wall hangings are inspired by topography and what lies beneath the Earth. Parrish’s latest series of Feather Plates are quickly becoming a gallery favorite. Richard works out of his studio in Bozeman, Montana and we are happy to call him a dear friend of the Gallery.
