Richard Furneaux Remsen studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and received his BFA in Sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1974. As an Artist, Mr. Remsen studied glass blowing with Dale Chihuly, Fritz Driesbach, Dan Dailey and apprenticed with Dominic Labino.
Mr. Remsen returned to Maine and established The Foundry, a sculpture studio specializing in bronze sculpture as well as blown and cast glass. The Foundry, located in an old blueberry processing building in West Rockport, Maine, has a versatile mix of tools and old technologies. The glass shop, one of the first hot glass studios in Maine, continues to be the catalyst of new designs.
