Bob Morehead, born in Naples, Italy, has always been fascinated with the amazing architecture along the Amalfi Coast, as well as many other European port destinations. Drawing inspiration from those memories, along with building tree forts as a child, and a visit to a Ripley’s museum featuring toothpick art, Bob began creating his initial project, now known as Bob’s Toothpick City, in the early 1980’s. Starting as a series of small structures, the city is now a growing metropolis of well over 400,000 toothpicks.
