Welcome to the Robert Maxwell

Robert Maxwell is probably best-known for the imaginative stoneware animal sculptures he produced in the 1960s in Venice, California. But he is much more than that. He is an accomplished potter who can and does produce just about any form on the potter’s wheel.

Creativity is a beautiful marriage of the soul of spirituality, the sub-conscious emotions and the intellectual reflections of past experiences. The artist, through hard work or a moment of inspiration, suddenly captures the magic of this creative moment.
