Hel­lo, Friends in Carv­ing -

The arti­cles for Part 2 of the January/February 2014 issue of WOM are now avail­able .  You’ll find them fol­low­ing this arti­cle.

Before you get to those, I’d look to point out a new fea­ture just added to WOM — see that lit­tle box at the top of the right side bar?  That is a search box, with gives you the abil­i­ty to search back issues of WOM.  Using key word search­es, you can much more quick­ly find, for exam­ple, all arti­cles about the Inter­na­tion­al Wood­carv­er Con­gress, or car­i­ca­ture carv­ing, or pat­terns.  At the moment, search only works with WOM entries from 2012 for­ward; short index arti­cles need to be writ­ten for old­er WOM arti­cles.  Once done, you’ll be able to search issues back to January/February 1997.

Hel­lo, Friends in Carv­ing -

 One of the rewards for a life of work is retire­ment from the work-a-day world, and the abil­i­ty to spend that for­mer work time on the things that your real­ly want to do — like more carv­ing, learn­ing to draw, teach­ing, doing more clay prac­tice pieces, sort­ing out web sites — and migrat­ing out of the Frozen North to warmer climes for a few months.  As it turns out, it was worth the work.  If you can’t vis­it some­where warmer, I hope you find time to keep work­ing at our shared art and craft.

Artistry in Wood, the annu­al two day carv­ing show host­ed by the Day­ton Carvers Guild was anoth­er won­der­ful event.  I ‘m hap­py I was able to chat with some of you there this year.   It’s a great show, and one that should be on your cal­en­dar to attend.  We’ll have some pho­tos from the 2013 show in the January/February issue of WOM; but in the mean­time, this issue con­tains addi­tion­al can­did pho­tos from the 2012 event, pro­vid­ed by “Ol’ Don” and Sandie Burgdorf.
