Hello Gene. Great to see your work on crafthaus. I hope this finds you doing well.
I will be coming to Oahu from Maui at on Dec. 29 and staying with my brother and sister-in-law. I would love to get together with Carol, Evan and Rene and their kids for lunch the Saturday after I arrive. Would also love to see you new place. All my best. Randy
I took a workshop with you when you visited University of Arizona in the early 80's on mokume-gane. so glad to find you here!
I just came back from visiting my daughter in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island.
Would love to visit for a cup of coffee when I come back next time.
Hi Gene! I am so happy that you found me on crafthaus. I do hope that you are well. It is so nice to see so much of your beautiful work that I have never see before. You are really being productive. I have gone to Hawaii almost twice every year as I now have two sisters live on Maui and a brother living on Oahu. I will get your contact info from Nicole and send you an email. Would love to catch up. Love Randy
