Hi everyone. After the avalanche of enquiries off the back of my recent postings on Facebook, I do appreciate all the comments and support. I feel that an update of my circumstances and future plans is the least I could do for those who wished to order items. I still have a number of challenging orders to fulfil; mostly museum replicas for historical fencing or display. As some of you are aware I am a one man band so output is limited to me alone. If I stop working nothing gets done. Next year, around the beginning of March, I will down tools to take a sabbatical for eleven months. During this time I will be in Italy to study, visit friends and take a rest from work. I will relaunch Feestspada when I get back, concentrating on high end commissions with the approach of an artist. This will be reflected in my pricing structure which I need to make more realistic in relation to the time spent on the work. To sum up, I will not be able to undertake any more commissions before I pack up as l am already at capacity. Feestspada will return in 2019!
