Rob Seven’s eye-catching spoon and fork critters are charming and whimsical but Rob began his 21 year journey into the world of metal folk art from the hot and dusty plant floor of a NC cotton mill. While he has always loved created things with his hands, he didn’t turn to making his silverware assemblages and metal sculptures full-time until 1991 when lost his job at the cotton mill and suffered several personal setbacks. Rob says “art has transformed my life and gave me back my soul, and I try to express and celebrate this transformation in all that I do”.
