My work is what gives meaning to my life. I have been learning, developing it for the last 50 years since I left school. There are so many techniques that I explored and introduced to others. My wish now is to teach and seriously share my knowledge with others. Anything from the basics of jewelry fabrication and soldering, or lost wax casting I offer, and techniques like Korean Keum Boo, or Japanese Mokume Gane, to Indonesian granulation techniques I can demonstrate and instruct. These are dying arts and I wish it were not so.
