The Penn-Jersey Basketry Guild celebrated their 25th Anniversary and invited Eric to give a presentation at their special celebratory meeting held on the Jersey Shore. He spoke about his career and gave a demonstration on bending wood. At the end of his talk, it was time for ‘questions and answers.’ One person asked “Where do you get your design inspiration from?” To be funny, I was in the back of the room wildly pointing at myself. I guess he didn’t see me! Afterwards, he told me he thought I was signaling him to wrap it up and he was talking too long. We both got a good laugh.
