A Potters Touch
After earning his bachelor´s degree in Art Education in 1974 from Rhode Island College, Robert accepted an apprenticeship at the renowned Leach Pottery, St. Ives, Cornwall, England. Robert worked and studied for two years with Bernard and Janet Leach, expanding upon the fundamentals he learned as a student at RIC under the guidance of Harriet Brisson and Richard Kenyon.
I enjoy stopping by his studio in the barn, I have had many enjoyable conversations, with bob and his wife, sittng near the kiln on a cold winter's day or sitting by the Koi pond on his property in the summer time enjoying a cool breeze.
