It was so nice to meet up and chat with you at SNAG last week. What an amazing CU/29 Show it was!! Thank you for your hard work putting it together, as well as the Exhibition Committee. Just wanted to share something that made my week... Eleanor Moty came by my Trunk Show table at one point and shared that Fred Woell had specifically commented on my piece at the Show. This in turn, followed up with an informal critique from him on some of my pieces!! What an honor and shock to my system... I'm still reeling from it. So, thank you, again for rolling the dominoes. Hope to see you in the desert sometime again.
I have been humbled at being accepted! I almost didn't submit thinking people with much better skills were going to submit. So, I really treasure your perspective and comments about my piece, gives me courage to carry on. I can't believe you actually remember it with all the submittals!! Thank you. I look forward to bumping into you at SNAG.
Hi David! I am one of the artists selected for the CU/29 Contemporary Work in Copper in conjunction with SNAG at Mesa Contemporary Arts. I am very excited to be included in it, especially by someone with your caliber of work-means a lot to me!
Thanks, David. If it was during SNAG Houston, I know it is one of 3 or 4 podcasts. No problem. Jay interviewed several different artists in each of the broadcasts. That is probably why there is no specific one labeled or tagged as such. I'll enjoy listening to them again.
To say I am a fan of your work is an understatement. I could go into every lavish detail of why, but it would make you blush...heehee... I recently listened to an interview you did. You were being interviewed by a man. I thought it was Jay Whaley, but I can't seem to find the interview to send it to a jeweler friend of mine. Could you send me a link, or let me know if I am confused. One of the things you talked about in the interview was how adding the gold to the inside of the pieces changed the whole game for you business wise. You also talked about the tools you use for making the larger pieces, etc. I'd like to listen to the interview again as well.
Thank you! Dawn
I really enjoyed your workshop and meeting you. Don't you just love Salida?
I was intending to send you some yellow ochre but couldn't find your address on your website. Also, If you want, I can dig around and see if I can find the company I bought the stretchy tape from if you haven't already found a source.
Ooo! How about a calendar app that says, "Let me clear space and work time in for you to pursue that idea," or "Would you like a 26 hour day with a 3 nap while time is suspended?" I'll see if I can get my developer on it, meanwhile I'm stuck with the Edward Gorey desktop calendar with writing on everything but the pictures. ;-)
Wow, that's high praise! The patina dreams are definitely good ones. Since getting to see the "furry ones" and your other magnificent vessels, the urge to repousse small vases is becoming even stronger. I have a big sheet of copper that calls my name and a calendar that says, "Step away from the raising hammer."
"Thanks John... Loved following your posts and imagine my sentiments regarding techie jeweley making to concur with yours. I'm more so an fan of ancient techniques... The hand of the artist seen in the work... Although the scientific mind of…"
"I'm back from Toronto now, Jenn and haven't heard from Rio about a badge. I'll only be able to in on Saturday anyway so it would be nice to just have a browse around the show for a couple of hours.
I'll let you know what I…"
