Devon Thein of the Ratti Center in the Met Museum, NYC invited me to  visit the Center and meet some of their young students whom she and Gunnel were meeting on Friday March 28th. I had hoped to see some of their antique IC pieces, but maybe the next time…..

    Hi Layla van Hoven I cannot get into my usual way of answering messages, so I’ll try this way. I don’t have your email address, but I’ll get Lana’s for you. I wasn’t aware about her book! Thank you for telling me! She is away at present, but she’s returning this weekend. Máire
