A SAMPLING OF RANDALL READING CREATIONS
After his graduation in 1972, Randall moved to Colorado and continued to sell his Oil paintings to the plentiful tourist and to the “Shyrtle Galleries” of Colorado Springs. But, like many young talents, so much recognition at too young of an age was overwhelming. At age nineteen he said goodbye to the world of art and returned to California.
The next eighteen years were an adventure in the entrepreneurial fast lane. The spectrum of businesses included two auto body shops (racecar prototype and design), an exotic car dealership, a landscape company, an Aircraft painting corp. various real estate investments, Muscle Car restoration, and even a Mexican food restaurant. During this time (1985) he became a private pilot and flying still remains on of his favorite past times.
At age thirty-seven his attention returned once again to the allure and challenge of Art. Approached by “Mill Creek Studios” in 1991, he agreed to create a line of North American Wildlife. A five-piece line sculpted from rock rather than the ever-popular wood burl, was born. It became an immediate success. By 1994 Randall became the best selling Wildlife sculptor in America, and produced over eighty works of wildlife sculpture over the next ten years. Acquiescing to demand and his own desire to enter the world of Bronze, in 2002 Randall began a line of “high-end” very limited edition Gallery bronzes and introduced them in 2004.
His career came to a crashing halt late in 2006 when his home was lost to fire. The two years spent rebuilding his home was a turning point and left Randall with the opportunity to reflect and define what he is truly God gifted to do. Call it form and function, functional art, or good old American style and innovation, his unique blend of mechanical, technical and artistic skills, have now produced numerous aesthetical innovations and have led to three US patents with a fourth and fifth on the way. His early attentions have been focused on the V-Twin motorcycle market, but technologies in the cue are as diversely encompassing as; revolutionary comfort foot inserts, in office cardio devices, and NFL/impact-sport safety breakthroughs. With his 3000 sq. ft. “Hanger” he designs, prototypes, and manufactures all his products to date. When asked about his vision he stated; “I have learned to defer to Gods vision as it relates to me. Hopefully it’s to create smart and innovative products, and thereby providing jobs and peripheral wealth for all those involved”.
