On September 13, I received an email from Tyler Flatt. In the email he told me that he works for Tiffany's and manages the artwork program. He said that they were interested in the possibility of buying some work from me and/or commissioning a new work for either their upcoming stores in Hong Kong and/or Beijing. Included in his email were images of some of my folded plywood sculptures as well as a plywood drawing on linen. We had arranged for him to do a studio visit. That morning I picked him up at the train station and brought him to our house. We had coffee and pastries, before looking at the work in the studios. The visit went well, as far as i could tell. At the end of the visit he said he needed to discuss the work with executives from the company. He had an uber car pick him up so he could go directly from here to a new store they had just opened in White Plains, NY.
