Richard Cooper Studio
Richard Cooper & Company work with some of the top UK sculptors to put together ranges of unique art which are produced using traditional methods, such as patination finishing. The Richard Cooper Studio began when Richard Cooper wanted to set forth on a project stemming from his passion for high-quality collectible sculpture, the like of which one would see in an art gallery shop.
Cooper's goal was to experiment with how much fine detail one could get into a miniature sculpture. The amount of work that goes into each sculpture is the same as would be the case for larger artwork, such is the delicacy of texture and shape of each one. With an in-house sculpting team led by Michael Simpson, their collections have become extremely popular.
Animal themed sculpture
The Richard Cooper Studio collections are always full of lots of treats for lovers of animals. Wildlife fans will have plenty to be pleased about in our wide selection of their sculptures which includes hares, ravens, pigs, dachshunds, foxes, ravens and much more. Exploring this collection is like walking through an idyllic British countryside scene, full of adorable animals, teeming with life and the powerful spirit of nature.
Finely crafted artwork
The sculptures in the Richard Cooper Studio collections have been crafted by some of the finest artists working in the industry today. The range brings together not only a number of different animals, but also of different mediums. Take your pick from hand-painted cold cast bronze sculptures, nickel plated resin sculptures, and hand-painted fine bone china sculptures. Feast your eyes on offerings from world-renowned animal and nature sculptors such as Michael Simpson and Keith Sherwin.
The Richard Cooper Studio had a big point of difference from the start when they started rehabilitated traditional techniques. A primary technique was, for example, that of cold painting bronze, a process which was loved in the Victorian period but for a while went out of practice. Their first collections were primarily crafted by Michael Simpson. Keith Sherwin has more recently added much to the Richard Cooper Studio. His coated nickel resin sculptures are richly emotive, depicting the strong and loving bond between families in the animal kingdom.
