Wim de Vos was cremated yesterday and his ashes await a big wake & celebration some time in May 2019 when everyone will come together Friday, Dec 14 2018 

My Instagram text from 6 days ago:

Vale Wim de Vos 1947-2018. He left the stage today, oh Boy, the Red Orb was the first stage I saw him on. As a musician, an artist, a printmaker, an educator and a facilitator he assisted so many people to find their voice and to become stars in their own right. I know I will always hear him talking to me in his melodic manner, as so many others will also. I’m told his was a lovely release.

2005 sculptured gold ring with Annette’s family diamonds back to the studio Friday, Dec 14 2018 

Bh-SculpturedGoldRing-W

A very early carved ring by Barbara, I’m surprised how many pieces (commissions) escaped without photo documentation. This is from 2005 and is listed in the ‘commissions-the lot’ list. So reminds me of early Han Chinese carving, clouds & spirits working their magic. Settings checked and the usual clean . . .
