​Richard Hunt was born in 1951 in Alert Bay, British Columbia, but has lived most of his life in Victoria.


​He began carving with his father, the late Henry Hunt, at the age of thirteen. In 1973 Richard began work at the Royal British Columbia Museum as an apprentice carver under his father.

The following year he assumed the duties of chief carver in the Thunderbird Park Carving Program. He remained in the museum in that capacity for twelve years.

In 1986, Mr. Hunt resigned to begin a new career as a freelance artist. He comes from a family of internationally respected artists, which include his father Henry Hunt and his grandfather Mungo Martin.

Over the years, Richards prolific talent has yielded a diverse body of art works.

In two-dimensional format his numerous designs are reproduced as limited edition serigraphs; painted on drums, boxes and screens; and engraved on jewelry. His best-known work, however, is three-dimensional sculpture in wood.

Bronzesmith has had the privilege of casting some of Hunts favorite works in bronze. Richard has made many traditional ceremonial items such as masks, frontlets, rattles and bowls, both for us in potlatches (traditional native ceremonies) and for the collections of museums, galleries, shops and private individuals.
