Artist on File: Dick Onians, Sculptor

Dick Onians is an altogether knowledgeable, curious and engaging human being.  As it was an Open Studio day in September, I shared him with a stream of visitors looking at his intriguing body of work. Dick works with many materials including wood, stone and also casts some of his pieces in resin and metal.
