my name is Peter, and I decided to join this wonderfull forum.
what a lot of worthfull information here, and also a lot of helpfull, skilled people.
the art you make is very impressive, and I have seen wonderfull pieces.
for a starter like me, a bit intimidating and at the same time a real challenge.
I made sculptures for a long time and worked in all kinds of stone. Pitty enough I got a dust allergie a few years ago, so I had to quit.
When I sold a sculpture, I mostly bought a Netsuke from a part of the money, so that got me interested in Netsuke’s.
And now, I decided to see if I can make Netsuke’s by myself. I did not know how to start, so I stumbled on google on the page of Ko Baas, a member here.
he maker extraordinary work,very impressive, so I mailed him with the question where to start.
He helped me out teriffic, and even send me a box with several pieces of wood to start with. Thanks Ko!
in my ordinary live I am a flamenco guitarist and teach guitar. (I must be careful with knifes and sanding paper, I need my nails to play)
I learn a lot from you, and hopefully I can be at use for you sometimes in return.
thanks Janel, to make this forum possible.
to all a very happy new year for you, and all the people you love.
