Well Aged

John Rohner is a man of many talents, not the least of which is spinning tales of his exploits and of the many tasty, sometimes downright scary things he’s eaten during his 95 years

Every time I've seen John he is always decked out with a spiffy bolero tie.

He captivated me in our chat, “Well Aged”,  in Episode 37.

John's showed me his engraving work, intricate and marvelous detail.

John R. Rohner was a museum curator, collections builder, professor emeritus at CU Boulder and has been called The Godfather of the American Engraving Renaissance.


His writings on engraving appeared in numerous publications providing knowledge to buyers and practitioners alike.  His passion for the art led him to create techniques and methods that are standards in the American engraver’s toolkit today.  His interests in wildlife art, guns and engraving forged a lifetime of friendships with others who shared those interests including Bob Brownell, Maynard Reece, and others.  Among such as these he was a source of cross-pollination, advancing the art of engraving with wildlife artists, gun-makers, gun writers, and publishers. 
 

Now in his 95th year, John Rohner is truly a living legend among engravers.

John's attention to detail is very much in evidence with this fish catching bear sculpture.
