strive to create pieces that provide both a tactile and
visual pleasure. It is through this experience that I
can share my passion for glass with the world
in Santa Ana, California, Robert Held aspired to be an artist from an
early age. His father, a sculptor, only lived six years of his son's
life, but passed on the talent and appreciation of art that gave Robert
the beginnings of a quest to create beauty in form and color.
In High School his paintings won him the "Ebell Award" for promising
students. He studied painting at Whittier College until ceramics artist
F. Carleton Ball crossed his path. To explore this new medium, Robert
changed colleges, supporting himself through this time as the Art
Director of the Los Angeles County Fair. Pursuing a Master's Degree in
Fine Arts at the University of Southern California, Robert was awarded
the graduate assistantship. At this time, he won the prestigious "Glen
Lukins Award" for new work in ceramics. Upon graduating, Robert was
offered a position as Head of Ceramics at a college being built in
Ontario. He accepted the position becoming the youngest department head
at the Sheridan College - School of Design.
