About the artist:
Rob began making pottery in the late eighties while studying to become an educator at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Being involved in the hobby of bonsai since 1997, the same year he began to teach art and music full time, Rob kept dabbling in pottery. Continuing to explore and develop new artistic ideas through the years, he began to learn and teach himself how to construct his own bonsai containers. In 2009, working out of his garage he opened Taiko-Earth pottery. Rob is truly happy with the challenges attributed to creating original ceramic containers. Today his pots are sold internationally and recognized in high regard by some of America’s premier bonsai artists. Besides teaching, his adult pottery classes and lectures at local bonsai clubs keep him very active. Rob currently lives in Lake Helen, Florida with his wife and two sons.
