Robin Epstein | 2020 Art Instructor Show

Robin Epstein is a featured artist in The Art Instructor Show, a virtual gallery featuring artwork created by Pacific’s talented art & design faculty.

What motivates my creative process in metalsmithing is the desire to evoke the spirit of an unearthed artifact from a lost civilization, combining found materials, semi-precious stones, everyday materials and patinas from natural elements. I consider the functional parts as essential to the overall design, and challenge myself (and my students) to come up with new and creative ideas for mechanisms.

Additional work and play can be found on the website of my alter ego, Bunny Huggins, at
