Tennesseans are well known as individualists. We like to adapt things to suit ourselves. That desire extends to everything from the food we eat to the clothing we wear to the vehicles we drive. One Tennessee artist has made a living turning machines into works of art that reflect the lives of the people who drive them. Rob Wilds went to Lascassas to meet George Williams, an artist who not only helps to enhance individuality, but who is quite a unique individual himself.
Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels. A presence in television, radio and print reporter for more than 20 years, Rob is a teacher, writer, producer and director as well as an actor (with appearances in feature films, television shows and on stage).
