Bob Mosier lives about 50 miles north of Houston TX. He has a BS in photography and graphic design, an MS in Art Education with ceramics as his studio major, and an MFA in sculpture and hot glass. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to hear him say he has never met a media he didn't like. A long time ago he used to build large 6-foot by 6-foot (and larger) kites using American quilt patterns, sewing them in rip-stop nylon, he has flown and exhibited them around the world. However, he never thought about turning 65 (now 70) and all that would entail, years of welding, grinding, and the heavy lifting of big steel sculptures started to require shoulder surgeries, so as everything gradually caught up with him, He began to think of other materials that would extend his artmaking career another 25 or 30 years. As he had already spent an inordinate amount of time on a sewing machine, the fabric seemed to be a logical material to return to.
