 Robert Foster initially trained as a silversmith and enjoys an international reputation as a skilled hollow ware maker. His name is also closely associated with F!NK & Co., his production company based on colourful, durable, anodised aluminium homewares. 

Foster’s studio works place great emphasis on the importance of research and development. He pushes both bench technique and innovative applied technology, and works with a freedom that comes from a complete mastery of his medium. His practice emcompasses lighting, furniture, accessories and public art commissions, as well as signature vessels and teapots full of personality.

For the first time, this monograph brings together Foster’s extensive and diverse practice, and provides a comprehensive and timely consideration of this energetic and engaging artist.

The work of Robert Foster is in major collections in Australia and the USA.
