Mando is a well-known sculptor. This is his son Raul, also an artist, at one time an assistant to Viola Frey, and now assistant to his dad. Alice is a weaver - note the loom under the piano.
He forms the figure from plasticine then creates the mold from the figure. The mold is filled with wax and then it goes to the foundry.
Eva McCracken who creates and sells weaving kits. Then she called Eva and I got to talk to her about what I need for a baby blanket kit. It makes sense to me to buy her kit rather than buy multiple cones of yarn and try to design my own. I brought them some soap and as we were leaving Alice gave me a beautiful Christmas hand towel - a treasure.
