My Art Piece for Robert

Some of you may know that Gordon has asked for crafters to make a piece of art for,or stamp something on, Roberts coffin to make a collage.

Had to give this some thought as Robert had his own style, but I remembered he enjoyed making masks when I first got to know him and was very much into steampunk, so I did my own version for him.

As you may know I work for Robert and Gordon at Once Upon A Stamp. You may also know that Robert has been seriously ill for the past few months. I am sorry to have to let you know that he passed away this morning at 2.15.
As you can understand we are all devastated, none more than Gordon.
I have known Robert and Gordon since they opened Once Upon A Stamp in Chesterfield back in 2004 and they have become dear friends as well as employers. Robert was always a funloving guy and a very talented artist/crafter, sharing his talents with so many. He will be sadly missed by many in the crafting industry and customers of the shop.
