December, 2013

As 2013 winds down to its final days I’m finally getting around to writing a newsletter. For me to say 2013 was a very busy year may sound like an excuse for not writing any other newsletters this year, but I suspect everyone can play that same card, so I’ll leave it on the table and ask forgiveness.

Spring involved several trips to Texas to gather some really spectacular wood and deliver sculptures. In February, we met with leaders of the Association of Graduates at the US Air Force Academy. This resulted in a contract for us to be a part of their 7258’ online gallery that supplies options for meaningful, quality gifts for US Air Force personnel (ie: special occasion or retirement, or just to say “thank you“) and for Academy graduates or alumni. This turned out to be a lot of unforeseen work, but resulted in a new line of sculptures and my learning to cut and polish hard stone. I’ve been incorporating this in my sculpture a bit and see a lot of potential.

Our son, Brent, graduated from the USAF Academy in May and asked me to join him on a trek to Peru in the way backs of the Amazon jungle to capture and photograph reptiles. It was one of those adventures where ignorance and a misstep could get you killed or maimed in a dozen different ways. It was great!

In August, Sculpture in the Park went very well. In September I was honored to be a part of the 2013 Buffalo Bill Art Show in Cody, Wyoming. The show was a big success this year and my pieces all auctioned for a good price. The rest of the year was filled with teaching and finishing commissions, many of which are in my 2014 calendar.

I have posted my full class schedule for 2014 on my “Classes”  page of the website,.

They are as follows:

Loveland, CO: April 7-11, September 8-12 (possibly in June if there is interest)

Indianapolis, IN: August 25-29 @ Marc Adams School of Fine Woodworking

Raleigh, NC: April 28-May 2

Williamsburg, VA: October 13-17

Please contact me at parables@jchristopherwhite.com if you are interested in having a class in your area. I would be glad to try to make that happen if you can provide a guarantee of 6-10 students.

If you order soon, there is time to get my 2014 Calendar, Reflections ‘n Wood. We made it just ¼ inch smaller so it will easily fit into a 12” x 12” envelope, about time!
Thank you for your continued interest in my work, I will be diligent this year to keep these newsletters quarterly.

Have a truly Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

J. Christopher White
