I have some sad news to pass along. Susan Elizabeth Wood passed away
today, 12/29 at 4:10 pm in Oakland, California after a long illness.
Susan was an incredible person, a consummate craftsman and artist
and a good friend to so many people in the Bay Area and especially in
Mendocino. She has taught for the past several years at California
College of Art and is widely known as a gifted and wonderful teacher
throughout the United States. For those among you who have had the
good fortune to learn from her or to count her as a friend or who
knew her work I share your sorrow. She will be sorely missed.
So, raise a glass – vodka martini would be a good choice-- to Susan
Wood. Safe travels, Susan. We will miss you.
