Space, transcends time, love and beauty; all these elements need to experience emptiness to be appreciated. "Beauty in the Void" embraces these concepts. It is the negative space that defines the shape and beautifies the piece. The void in the texturing enabling the coloured panel to change from red to blue. The patina producing the space to highlight the silver leaf.

Beauty, quite simply, is the presence of absence.

Joey Richardson is an English woodturner known for her delicate pierced and richly hued wood forms. Her practice investigates the emotional and symbiotic relationship humans have with trees. There is often an autobiographical element in her work which has strong links to the history of the place and the origin of material.

Awards of both a Worshipful Company of Turners bursary (2005) and a Queen Elizabeth QEST scholarship (2012) funded her development studies in America with the late Binh Pho; whilst her recent MA in Fine Art has augmented her craft skills with a theoretical depth. Joey demonstrates internationally and her sculptures are held in numerous permanent and private collections worldwide which include recent commissions for Faberge and the Royal Warrant Holders Association. She is a court assistant of the Turners Company (2018), president of the AWGB (2022) and has been awarded the prestigious QEST Award of Excellence (2015).
