Ron Gerton
Washington, United States

Ron Gerton is a retired mechanical engineer with over 30 years of experience in the nuclear field. The Art Nouveau style, with its emphasis on natural forms and shapes is his favorite design inspiration. He creates hollow vessels from highly figured wood and combines these with cast bronze shapes to create unique sculptures. He has his own bronze foundry he constructed out of discarded industrial materials. To him, nature is the greatest creator of beauty and his challenge is to display it beautifully. He has pieces in the permanent collection of the Detroit Institute of Art Museum, the New York Museum of Art and Design, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, The Addison museum of Art in Boston, The Fuller Craft Museum in Boston, The Minneapolis Museum of Fine Art, The Mobile Museum of Fine Art, and the University of Michigan Art Museum, the Peabody Essex Museum of art, Salem MA. His work can also be found in many fine private collections and in numerous books and art magazines.
