Bob Leverich is an architect, sculptor, and craftsman, and a faculty member at The Evergreen State College, where he teaches visual art, craft, and sustainable design. He has building projects, sculpture, and furniture works in public and private collections across the country and in Canada. His architectural experience includes commercial, public, residential, and religious projects, as well as preservation of historic structures.
His sculpture and craft works have addressed expressive and functional themes in a variety of materials. His recent sculpture has focused on carved stone and wood, using iconic landscape and body forms, and includes large, site specific, multi-part public art works in Maine and Washington State. Bob regards drawing as a foundational tool in his working process, and he sees architecture, sculpture, and craft as connected by their substantiality and character as kinesthetic experiences, both in making and in use. Meaning gained through making is fundamental to his work and to his teaching.
