We are saddened to share the news that Keith passed away September 1, 2012 after a 3-month battle with cancer. Keith lived a full life that embraced the creative spirit, and nurturing it in others.

His obituary can be downloaded here. A lovely story appeared on the Flint Journal's site about Keith, as well.

A scholarship has been created at Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan as a tribute and legacy for Keith to help nurture the next generation of creative artists who bring beauty to form and function.

Repurchase of Keith's Work

Keith's two daughters have learned much from their father. But with his passing, we have come to realize how few of Keith's pieces are left for them. We realize people's tastes may change, remodeling or downsizing occurs, and so the Fulmer family would be most grateful for the opportunity to potentially purchase back any item made by Keith that you are interested in returning. If you would like to follow up on this offer, please contact Keith's wife, Mara Jevera Fulmer:

With sadness and warmest wishes, on behalf of the family of Keith Fulmer.
