Orion Richey Sculptor With A Vision

I fabricate colorful metal SPIRALS

ORION SCULTPTURES * CREATIVE METAL WORK

As the Sculptor Orion Richey, I created Orion Sculptures to Inform designers, architects, galleries, art connoisseurs and buyers about my Contemporary Spiral Sculptures. My vision is to create rigid spiral sculptures - strong enough to withstand the outdoors yet elegant enough to beautify the interior living space. My sculptures are displayed outdoors in gardens, landscaped yards, urban environments and indoors. I make sculpture by cutting spiral patterns from plate steel then fabricate, machine, weld and paint. Dynamically fabricated then powder coat painted, Orion Sculptures is creative metalwork that discovers and shows the elegance and beauty of the Multi-Arm SPIRAL.
