Bob Rickart - About the Artist

We met Bob and his wife Jacqueline at a show 3 or 4 years ago and we always look forward to seeing them 2 or 3 times a year. They came to New Bern last fall, right after we moved into our new house.

Bobs work is great and we love the fact that men love it, you know how hard it is to find things for guys.

Bob was in college in the 60s and started out in the theatre designing, building and lighting stage sets. He went on to stage productions for a regional California theatrical company.

After starting a family Bob switched to designing computer software, which he continued to do for the next 30 years.

Now he's back creating art. It started with puttering in the garage, and has now turned into a vocation that allows him to travel across the country working with galleries.

His tools are those common to metal fabrication shops: saws, shear, brake, torch, plasma cutter, welder, drill press, grinder, blast cabinet, spray booth.

We currently carry Bobs clocks, to see more or to purchase go to our website

This coming year we're working with Bob to have some of his larger wall pieces.

Many people stand and puzzle trying to figure out what materials he uses. It's aluminum and auto paint.

We'd love to help you find the perfect piece for your home or business. Bob always welcomes commissions.!
