Robert Megerdichian returns to M.E.S.A. to share a presentation on his father's artwork. Turning and shaping metal was a passion for machinist Abraham Megerdichian. During his lunch breaks at General Electric, where he worked as a machinist, he would sift through the metal scraps dumpster looking for materials he could use to machine utilitarian objects like a vase or candlestick. As his skill increased, he challenged himself to make intricate and detailed miniatures of everyday objects, which he gifted to family and friends.
