Robert is a fourth generation South Carolinian and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree. One of Robert’s major influences was the yearly trip with his family to Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina. This influence can be seen today in his love for classic realism. The works he creates evolve from day to day interactions, stories his children and wife share with him, and his love of mythical, whimsical characters. “I strive to bring forth, out of the cold clay or metal, the grace, courage and inner strength of the male and female, the tender innocence of the child and the indomitable spirit of God’s creatures”.

The relationship between humans and animals can be seen in a number of his works. In each piece, it is very important for him to focus on the smallest of details: from the placement of a hand; strands of hair blowing in the wind; to the eye contact between the subjects. In his view, it helps bring the sculpture to life and completes it.

In conjunction with his sculpting, he shares his knowledge by teaching classes to adults who have inspired to create and mentors to children and young adults.

His studio is located in Parker, Colorado where he currently works and lives.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula

15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
