    I’m a Northern California artist with a 45 yr. career, solo sculpture show Oakland Musem Sculpture Cpurt 2001. You deserve a show @ the Metropolitan Museum in N.Y. VERY inspiring. Have you read Henry Petroski’s book “The Pencil?”

    There was a typo in my previous posting: should’ve been ‘court.” Anyway, I’ve produced design documents for 4 No. Calif. public projects and I also save my pencil stubs, have 2 boxes full, use the pencil extenders etc. They’re like your favorite old Levi’s with the knees blown out. How can you discard old friends who’ve served so well?
