Richard Erdman’s art practice is supported by studios in both Williston, Vermont and Carrara, Italy.

Richard Erdman Studios, Vermont

The team at our Vermont studio works on the business side of operations, establishing marketing initiatives and supporting our galleries in California, Boston, Palm Beach, Montreal, Stowe, Austria, and Switzerland. We manage commissions from start to finish, working with both public and private collections worldwide.

It is here in the lush green mountains that the idea for a work is born, taking shape in plaster as the artist designs and creates his models, which he then brings to Italy to be carved in stone or cast in bronze.

Today we would like to use this platform to share the work of Augusta Savage, a civil rights activist, sculptor, and one of the leading artists of the Harlem Renaissance. Here she is at work on “The Harp” for the 1939 New York World’s Fair.

These Carrara marble beauties were installed at a private residence in Indian Wells, California a few weeks ago. We are grateful to @whipplerussellarchitects and @shipartinternational for the beautiful site and the excellent installation. 📸 : @kaminskyproductions

Throwback to 1979: Richard carving “Stone Scenario” in Carrara marble #throwbackthursday

Richard working on a plaster maquette at the Williston, Vermont studio. “It is my sense that life is 99% invisible; in the sublime beauty of stone, there are worlds of possibility and wonder. In the process of carving away 80-90% of marble from the original blocks, there exists what I call a ‘released compression’ a result of having been deep within the Earth for 300 million years.” Photo by @laurenmazzotta

We are looking forward to getting back in the studio - in the meantime here’s a look back at some of the first rough cuts on Arete in Carrara marble
