Raitis Bobrovs came to stay with us in October 2015 and originally the plan was that he would stay for the next two months… but time kept passing and Raitis kept building, and building and fixing. In all Raitis stayed with us for 9 months and it felt like loosing an arm, leg or an eye when he left us… life was not the same. Raitis became a truly dear friend and a strong backbone in our ever growing family. He is such a talented and creative person and one day… we hope he will be back and to throw some pots and build some crazy ass furniture from scrap!
Raitis did an unbelievable amount of work in the Factory, and just to mention a few, he helped us with the building of Studio Silo, completely revamped the wood workshop, raised the walls of the new ceramic workshop and bigger artist studio, managed creative workshops with Elena, fixed the roof, held our hand during some plumbing moments, threw away copious amounts of scrap metal, built doors and fitted windows and he could just about do everything! Not to mention that Raitis is also a doctor in chemistry… :) Wow.
