I have the sad news to report that Kurt Matzdorf passed away
December 20th, 2008.
He was incredibly important in my life. I knew him when I was still
a child, and he critiqued my application for Art College. When I was
in graduate school he helped direct the organization of fold-forming.
He was a friend and good man, influential in hundreds of silversmiths
and jewelers lives.
