Robert Megerdichian: Metal Miniatures


Event Details


Visitors to the Museum of Work & Culture will be treated to a special sneak preview of a collection of metal miniatures by Abraham Megerdichian of Cambridge, MA.

Megerdichian was a lifelong machinist who began to make utility items for his home, such as knives, vases, pans, during his lunch breaks working in the factory. As his skills improved so did the complexity of his miniatures. He began to make increasingly intricate objects from brass, aluminum, copper, and stainless steel as gifts for his family and friends.

The Museum showcases a collection of delightful animals and toys crafted by Megerdichian during this holiday season.
