When this former university administrator and teacher-turned “traildog” and artist is not working on or enjoying the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail or the Ouachita Trail, he is creating whimsical metal sculptures for your home or garden, and he forges a number of other useful items you will enjoy.

Not all of Robert’s work is on display in the Store, but contact Jan at Black Dog Design for any special orders.
