American Contemporary Folk Art
“Rich manipulates the parallax principle to bring movement to something static.”

Robert Joseph Rich is a Celtic-American Glass Artist of Old World Craft Descent. A throwback blending 19th Century technology and primitive methods in developing the trademark style of a career spanning more then 42 years. Etching glass from New York to Hollywood in the American experience of one armed only with little formal schooling, a God-given talent, and a flare for the mystical and otherworldly. Rich has traveled the nation going from street artist to studio master achieving excellence through reclusive self-education and old fashion hard work.
Here, only by the grace of God, at 62 years of age and internationally published, he is now an elder statesman of a dying art known to few…..save the ancient ones.
