With humble hands and a charming curiosity, chemistry teacher-turned-sculptor, Bobby Jaber, recreates his elemental knowledge in physical form. Crafting wonderfully intricate porcelain pieces based on different molecular structures, Bobby draws another connection between the earthen medium and the chemistry itself. 
 
 “Chemistry is the study of changes in matter. More than any other art form, ceramics dramatically demonstrates chemical change, especially at the physical level.”
 
Having retired for over 20 years, Bobby works the sentiments of ceramics into a warm approach to life—getting a feel for the process, the journey, and for serendipitous imperfection.
