GORGEOUS book! I saw a copy at Metalwerx last week and ran home and
ordered my own. Detailed tutorials and beautiful photos. Waiting
impatiently for it to arrive.

I’ve taken more courses on stone setting than I care to mention and
the only one which stands out in my mind was the one given by John
Cogswell. His new book on Creative Stone Setting is as he teaches…
concise, well explained and indeed creative. He should be commended
on such a thorough, wonderful work.

I had the distinct pleasure of being taught and having John Cogswell
teach at Metalwerx. He is simply the Teacher’s teacher and I’m
thrilled he has written a book.

I’m buying mine right away. Cool.

Oh, what to do, what to do?!? I’m going to be taking his class in
January at the FSGNE Winter Workshop 2009. Should I get the book now,
or wait…

There has been a number of posts praising J. Cogswell’s new book.

For those of you who have seen it could you post one item that you
feel is unique, or innovative, or otherwise grabbed your attention
in some way?

I had just read some more of this thread on Wednesdays Orchid and
reached the Steve Frie post for Creative Stonesetting by John
Cogswell at their site below
http://www.ottofrei.com/store/product.php?productid=18093

I went to the entry and found what is probably the definitive
statement on this thread in the first paragraph. John Cogswell says
it all. This is why I like to teach and feel that it is my obligation
to do so. Several skilled masters unselfishly did the same for me
over many years and have given me a satisfying career, made me a
very happy and contented man with dirty scared fingers but with
shinny thumb nails :slight_smile:

I was reading it until 11pm last night. Wonderfully clear tutorials
that progress from basic bezel to the stars. The most experienced
setters might not be interested, but for a student beginner like me,
it is just great. He must be a wonderful teacher.

I completely agree about John Cogswell. My order went in on the
first; I can’t wait to see it.

I located the book on Amazon and unfortunately, that was before the
posting came from Steve Frei.

Kelley - why not get the book now and take it with you to class for
him to sign. You can, in the meantime, be ahead of the curve for class
by reading the book or at least studying it for a while, unless you
think he may have copies available there for you. Why not ask?

Even the most experienced setters get ideas as there are different
ways of doing things! Learning isn’t only for beginners…
everyone should always be learning.

If you study the book first, you’ll be in a position to take fullest
advantage of the opportubity to ask questions!

What is FSGNE? It would be nice to know what and where that workshop
is.

Richard,

What is FSGNE? 

Go to fsg4u.com and look at the Northeast Chapters workshop.
