A bit about Val: Val Link retired in 2007 from the University of Houston where he headed the jewelry and metals program for 37 years. During this time he also established a business producing one of a kind designs in the media of jewelry, hollowware, flatware and small sculpture. Since retirement, he has concentrated on his commission business, conducting jewelry and metals workshops and learning and doing restoration work in the field of Horology. We couldn’t ask for a better juror!

Good Luck everyone! Let’s make it a great show!
