School his paintings won him the "Ebell Award" for promising students.
He studied painting at Whittier College until ceramics artist F. Carleton Ball crossed his path.
To explore this new medium, Robert changed colleges, supporting himself through this time as the Art Director of the Los Angeles County Fair. Pursuing a Master's Degree in Fine Arts at the University of Southern California, Robert was awarded the graduate assistantship. At this time, he won the prestigious "Glen Lukins Award" for new work in ceramics. Upon graduating, Robert was offered a position as Head of Ceramics at a college being built in Ontario.He accepted the position becoming the youngest department head at the Sheridan College - School of Design. In 1968, after a visit to the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, Robert Held discovered a new love: the art of glassblowing. This program allowed many Canadian artists to become skilled in this medium, and crowned Robert Held as the pioneer of art glass in Canada. Held left the teaching world, and in 1978 he began his own glass studio known as Skookum Art Glass Inc based out of Calgary, AB and operated there until 1987. At this time, he moved to Vancouver, BC, and enjoyed much success there at his studio: Robert Held Art Glass. In April 2013, after 37 years in production glass, Robert decided to retire to pursue other art interests and move to Vancouver Island with his fiancée, Irene. After one month of retirement and a fortuitously for-lease Quonset Hut near his new home, Robert decided to re-open Robert Held Art Glass in beautiful Parksville, BC. Today, Robert Held Art Glass is enjoyed through the many fine galleries and gift shops that carry his work throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
