Subject: Cyril Colnik Book
> Hello fellow smiths,
> Call me a glutton for punishment, but I taking on yet another project. Al
> Strekow, former president of the "Friends of Villa Terrace Decorative Arts
> Museum", is putting together a book on Cyril Colnik. VTDAM is the museum
> that houses a permanent exhibit of Colnik's ironwork, drawings,
> photographs, etc. I have been asked to provide an essay regarding
> Colnik's work for the book. I thought an essay reflecting the viewpoints
> of many smiths, not simply myself, would be appropriate.
> I come to you for a favor. What I am looking for are your thoughts and
> impressions regarding Colnik's work, and if you have been influenced (or
> not) by his works. I am not looking for anything more than a paragraph.
> If you do send me your thoughts, please include the following information:
> 1.) Your paragraph.
> 2.) Your e-mail address, and phone number.
> 3.) Your studio address, city and state.
> 4.) Whether or not I can use your name in the text.
> Please send the info by e-mail, or US Mail to:
