Hank Adams
is the most under rated of all Blenko designers.
Some day people will come to realize the intensity of his vision and ability. My word is to
Buy now before the Adams prices increase.

The non Blenko work by this artist is outstanding.

2 years ago 3 friends and I did a 3 day workshop at Wheaton.
There are many other activities and workshops in various crafts.
Art collections, the area is filled with unique shops and bed and breakfast locations.
For an educational weekend trip or just for a fun filled weekend trip Wheaton would be in my top 100 places. Centrally located if you are on the east coast.
Good Luck.
