Bob has been that individual in the metalsmithing/jewelry field who has been so influencial in observing and responding to materials for use as adornment, indiscriminant of it's social position of precious/non-precious.
I think I can speak for all those involved with the workshop, when I say, "Thank you, Bob. You are truly inspiring."
Below are a number of photos from his stay with us at the Southwest School of Art & Craft, including the little project I had students collaborate on - as a parting gift for Bob, I made a simple chain from iron wire and asked all students donate one sample to be added to the neckpiece.
