His artwork, wheel thrown at his private studio in North Scituate, Rhode Island, has been exhibited in more than 100 museum stores, gift shops and galleries across the United States.

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.

Robert opened his own studio in January of 1980.

In his spare time, Robert enjoys Scuba diving and underwater photography:

Robert´s wheel thrown pottery can be seen at one of many Fine Art and Craft Fairs he exhibits in throughout the year.
