    First Exhibition

    Thank you Billy, National and local newspaper has been for an interview , it's remarkable how little people know of the existence of netsuke's , and that there are people who practice this form of carving , I have mention this forum as an important source of information techniques , and special two people of this forum, Janel Jacobson and Tom Sterling , the Free eBook – How to Carve Netsuke and Miniature Sculpture from Tom Sterling is a must read for everyone ,
