Alan, When Metalwerx had their first big press splash on the
front page of our local paper, it read “Removing Walls Between
Art and Public”.
The best part of what we do, is showing John/Mary Q. Public that
not only is it nice to look at jewelry, but it is even more fun
to make it yourself.
I salute mentors like yourself with a host of others who have
inspired me. Claire Sanford, John Cogswell, Boris Bally. And
finally to Greg Ramallo, who let me sit at his bench when I was
in high school and watch him set stones, put a flame to a torch
and divulged the mysteries of a kind of pyro alchemy that was
strange and beautiful. He was a friend of Salvidor Dali and
worked on his jewelry pieces that are in the large book published
by Abrahms. Greg was also a pilot who helped ferry medical
supplies to Mexico City.
Sitting at his bench inspired me to always share with others.
