Richard Kindersley studied lettering and sculpture at Cambridge School of Art and in his father, David Kindersley’s, studio. He has had an independent studio in London since 1966. He is a letterer of international renown. His knowledge and love of poetry and understanding of letterform results in powerful, unique work. He carves in many materials, the chosen letter forms and texts expressing the different qualities of the stone, brick or metal. He has worked extensively in Scotland and in recent years has created a series of magnificent, monumental standing stones, (a group from the Millennium now in the Sainsbury Collection) with words carved directly into slabs of Caithness stone.
