Fred's work ranges from jewelry to holloware and flatware, to liturgical objects. He is at ease with gold but works more often in sterling or pewter. Recently retired after 43 years of teaching at UW Madison, Fred shaped several generations of American metalsmiths to approach their work with professionalism and skill. Fred is very active on the workshop circuit, usually teaching hollowware or pewter techniques. Several examples of his pewter vessels are featured and are for sale at Studio Jewelers.
