It was with a very warm and proud heart that I went to the web site
to read about the Heikki Sepp� award. In 1970 he did a workshop at
Virginia Commonwealth University, he will surly not remember me but
boy do I remember him. He is an extremely intellectual and gifted man
and had so much to teach us but the thing that stands out in my mind
was he unique humbleness and refreshing pragmatic approach to the
students. I was a young novice student at the time and I remember
working right along beside him in the metal smithing studio and
feeling so relaxed and confidant because he made you feel so capable.
With all of his great skill and accomplishment it was his passion and
warmth that came across not his ego.
Thank you Heikki for giving so much care and respect to your
