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

About Richard

Erdman grew up at the foothills of the oldest marble quarries in the U.S. After graduating from college, he made a pilgrimage to the world’s finest source of marble: Carrara, Italy. There, he found, as he puts it, “worlds of possibility and wonder in the sublime beauty of ancient stone.”
