Hi Kari - David Savage is one of the most influential makers in the UK and is held in very high esteem on this side of the pond. I'm currently organising a competition on UKWorkshop and did ask David to be one of the judges. After some very careful consideration he had to decline as he had commitments in the New World this summer... - Rob
