Robert Dancik

CCP is heading to the Art and Soul Retreat in Portland again this October. We went last year and had a blast. This year's line up is just as fabulous. We're currently in the mix of planning our booth for booth night and talking with the 3 amazing artists we'll have the privilege of filming during our five days there.

Today we spoke with Robert Dancik. He called us from a workshop he's teaching out in Tennessee at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. It's always so great to begin the conversation with artists about what they'll teach in their DVD workshop. The people aspect is the best part of the job whether it's interacting with our customers at a vendor night or hanging out with the artists between takes. Just through listening to Robert discuss his work I already know this will be a great DVD.

Robert works with many mediums including epoxy, polymer, precious metal clay and a product he didn't invent but did develop called Faux Bone. His combination of any of these materials is simply wonderful.

Check back for more updates here about Robert and in the meantime enjoy the beautiful gallery at his site.
