James, I was planning to attend you workshop at Penland until today, when I checked dates and the workshop is going to start the last day of the Craft Boston show...so I won't be able to sign up!!!
Are you planning to teach somewhere else next year?
I really really really want to try the mokume-kami.

Thank goodness it's a doll! I had to click on your profile pic cause I thought, 'does this man know he looks plastic!?' Great work by the way.

Hey James, I was a student at UNT when you did the spinning demo and workshop. Graduated from there a couple of years ago. I have enjoyed spinning ever since. Still a member of the Metals club. Going through the frustration of trying to get into grad school and building up my portfolio. Thanks for adding me to your list.
