Episode 4 // Robert Turek // Maker of the Everyday Object

Robert is not an architect, he’s a designer of everyday objects. After graduating from Cranbrook Academy of Art, he started a business with his partner making hand-crafted pottery at Lustered Walnut in California. Thanks to John Fairey’s architecture studio at Texas A&M, students were exposed to Shaker design, Robert would later embrace Shaker design as a foundation for his concept behind making everyday object collections. His journey continues more recently to Denver where he operates a college maker space. Robert’s interview is an inside look at being a maker.
