ROBERT LAWARRE III~
Love this guy! Love this work! Rob is a particular favorite of mine. I juried his work into a show...then we showed together at Kansas City NCECA. We became instant friends. Rob, along with Cindy Bracker Sturm, encouraged me to do the Process Room this year. What a blast!
Anyhoo...I love that Rob's work is handbuilt, has copious amounts of texture and pattern, has such tension and movement that it appears alive...and has faces!
Rob creates his work from mid range porcelain and some black ware. He uses handmade tools made from car parts. Something he taught himself to do as a machinist and NASCAR enthusiast. As a result of this there are references to machines (nut, bolts, etc.) in his work. Go see MORE work on his website: http://robertlawarre.com/
Love ya, Miss ya, Rob!
