FANMAIL: I know it was probably 10 or 11 years ago in Mendocino but it made me feel old so I was just being vague. Anyway, still, when I joined crafthaus there was a photo of one of your pieces up in the sidebar and every time I saw it, I laughed because I remembered our class. I still remember telling you I was Hungarian and that you had some of that in your family history too.
I treasure the cup I have that you made and still love your style. I'm working with metal clay for the last 10 years in between some ceramic sculpture. Your class was one of my best ceramic classes taken and gave me many things to think about - especially "color and line". If I had a list of artists that influenced me, you would be in the top ten of that list, even though I work in silver now. I sometimes check the internet for photos of your current work. I hope you are doing well.

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
