Bob Nechin, born in New York, educated at West Point and Stanford University, creates commissioned works in glass, wood and steel for public and commercial buildings, religious institutions and private residences. In addition he creates unique objects of art using glass and other materials. His approach to design is unorthodox, always seeking artistic expressions that provide sensations of freedom and space. Aesthetics is an important part of his work, whether the creation is intended for an architectural setting or as an autonomous art object. Humor also often plays a part in his artistic expression.
