  1. Hello, David

    My name is Kyoko and I am visiting UK with my husband now.
    I came across your site while ago and wanted to see your work at V&A as you mentioned here.
    We were at V&A today but I didn’t have the detail about your work and we couldn’t find it even though we inquired about it with your name. Is the exhibition now on? Or later in September?
    I’d love to see it if possible but we will be in Oxford only till next Thursday.
    i appreciate it very much if you could give me the detail about V&A.
    I am also interested to see the Smith Tip and see if it is useful for my gilding.
    My pieces are not flat most of the time since we apply them on wood, furnitures and frames,etc.
    Would you please tell me if there is any store where they stock the tip in Oxford or London?
    Thank you very Much,
    Kyoko

    Hope you find it ok. I could bring a Smith Tip with me but you would need to meet me there on the 5th.
    Thanks

  3. Compete the truly amazing work with the positioning. I regards. Will you apply certain more frequent updates, even so am quite sure you were given even more or better stuff to do.

    Hi David,
    I’m a sign writer in limerick in Ireland and my sister Cora was speaking to you last year about workshops… You were kind enough to write an encouraging comment on a ‘smiths tip’ she got for Christmas , thank you.
    Gerry fitzgibbon trained me in cork in 1995 and I’ve been working away ever since.
    He maintains you did a deal at the crossroads!
    Anyway, he suggested I try to do a weekend course with you at least as I’m very interested in glass work and really could use some help with acid etching and glue chipping in particular.
    I love this v & a piece and was going to try something onto it for my wife’s Montessori school sign, she gets a new sign every few years so I can show off a bit.
    At first glance it looks very simple and then you notice all the detail which I like and so does niki who’s the boss!
    Perhaps I should wait until after doing a course with you if you’ve some coming up this year?
    Keep it up dave, it’s a breath of fresh air

    Best regards

    Tom
