President's Message

President's Message Jan-Feb 2013


It is not too early to start scheduling your NWSSA carving time. 2013 is going to be a great year for stone sculpture. We will be working with jade, granite, marble, basalt and limestone, all stones we know and love. And, of course, we’ll have wonderful folks who will be there to help us along with inspiration and knowledge. Deborah Wilson, Norbert Jaeger, Claire McArdle and Tony Angell are coming to Camp B, while John Fisher and Kazutaka Uchida will join us at Silver Falls.

This long winter will be brought up short when we all get together under our two big blue skies of summer. 

Looking forward to it,

Gerda Lattey

President's Message Nov-Dec 2012

GerdaWe are coming into longer days, marking another year as the NWSSA, and again I'm looking foward to seeing you all this summer. It is my hope that you will find some way to make merry this holiday season, and if that merry making includes bashing a bit of rock, then we are all the better for it. Maybe it's just me, but NWSSA feeld a bit quiet lately, and I'm taking that as a positive sign. Hopefully it means you are all warm, safe and working a bit on the stuff we love.  

My very best to you all,

Gerda Lattey

President's Message Oct 2012

It has been a truly wonderful summer for NWSSA. We have two more impressive symposiums under our seasonal belt and in my experience with the organization; Silver Falls and Camp B had the biggest outpouring of support, both in terms of volunteerism and positivity.Gerda

Echoes abound that we are indeed a very special group of people and when we put our heads and our hearts together, we create an environment of knowledge, support and inspiration that is unrivaled by any other.

Things are good. NWSSA is moving forward. We are doing wonderful things together. Folks from every demographic are stepping forward into the inclusive environment that you have created. Keep your heads spinning with new ideas and keep your hearts full.

Thank you. You make me proud.
