Bob is totally approachable and let us tour workshop as well as the studio. His massive sculptures are on display all over town and it obviously a local favorite. His personality is warm and inviting, even to us yankees!

Bob does beautiful work with stainless. His pieces are exceptional. A visit to his shop and garden is an adventure. He is very talented and it shows in his work. If you are interested in eclectic beautiful pieces, he is your man...

I have known Bob for many years and have always found his work with stainless to be totally amazing. A visit to his shop is always a wonder because you never know what he may be working on. He is always friendly and eager to talk about his artwork.

A trip to Bob's is well worth your time. It's not often you can see an artist at work...Awsome!
