Fred's work ranges from jewelry to hollow ware and flatware, to liturgical objects. He is at ease with gold but works more often in sterling or pewter. Having 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.
