Since the mid 1970's Bob has dedicated a great part of his life to clay. The vessel has been his consistent form of expression.Bob is a superb craftsman when it comes to the use of the potter's wheel. Finishes of his work, however, that bring him distinction. Bob's pottery surfaces have a design derived from a balance of chance and control in the firing process and his pieces have a presence that is enhanced by the contrast of their rough-hewn forms while the process and the artist's hand are evident in the elegant finishes.

Bob and his wife Jenny Kizziar have conducted and participated as experts in workshops throughout the west and in Ireland and Germany.
