While in New York last week I had a nice chat with my friend Valentin Yotkov who I have known for several years. He lives and works in Brooklyn but was trained in repoussage the classic European way apprenticing under Alexander Raiev. This isn't carving, but I thought many would appreciate his lovely work.


I particularly appreciate his "Homage to my teacher".

I'm deeply touched by this mans evident depth of feeling for another, who he regarded as his teacher. All this despite the fact that he evidently only (?) spent a single year with him. What a wonderful and exemplary lesson this is to us all.


To quote Sir Isaac Newton; " If I see far it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants"
