Treasure Chest

Posted by Dave Bull at 2:23 AM, April 2, 2013 [Permalink]

Those of you who have been following the Mokuhankan Conversations blog know that I recently participated in an auction for a box of old tools. The lead-up to the auction - and its aftermath - are the content of my newest video, which features some 'Candid Camera' of two of our printer trainees as they discover the treasures we obtained ...

The Stars of the Show were young Ayumi Miyashita and Yoko Ishikawa, both doing excellent work here at our printing benches, and - as you heard - both very excited about our new tools!

I am a painter/printmaker from Sacramento, California. I learned about the Baren Forum many years ago from a member and close friend, Carol Wagner. You need to know just how much enjoyment participating in the Baren organization brought to Carol in her final years. My husband and I watched your video about the Yahoo treasure boxes and also got excited over your finds. May good fortune continue to smile upon you.
