Richard G. Nolan
A self-described perfectionist, Rich expressed his creative side as a youth by drawing in pencil, winning a Gold Key award in high school. Then, by chance, he was introduced to mechanical drafting, which was embraced as a new art form and showed the way to his calling as a mechanical engineer. For 25 years, Rich expressed his artistry through his drafting while becoming an accomplished designer holding numerous U.S. patents; his career culminating in building his own business designing and manufacturing fiber optic components. Now as his business retires, Rich focuses his design and creative energies on hand crafting fine art sculptures from wood. Rich’s creations are constructed principally from cherry and black walnut hardwoods; utilizing conventional woodworking tools, a strong reliance on self-developed techniques used for seamless joining and great deal of belt, drum and hand sanding. The resulting collections of projects are truly unique in form and maintain the clean sophisticated style symbolic of the reputation he developed as a respected design engineer.
