Pamela Richmond


My designs are often influenced by the countryside in which I live and work. When a friend remarked “Ah Kyffin–big black rocks”, the group of Welsh rocks in our garden proved very useful. I love working with gold and the tooling of the Kyffin is deliberately deep to echo the strong lines of Kyffin Williams’ work.
