"My designs combine color, form, pattern and texture in ways that produce
new and unique results." - Robert Wilhelm

Robert Wilhelm surprises viewers with his exploration of form, function and
surface decoration and his playful approach to making everyday objects. His
shapes, either turned on a lathe or carved, invite us to touch and provide
visual excitement.

Wilhelm's work with Native American totems and fetishes in the mid-1990s
inspired his pepper mill and saltshaker collection. These functional art pieces
are available in a range of styles and vibrant hand-painted color
combinations.
