Ray Leier: In Memorium

Ray Leier, owner of del Mano Gallery in California, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, September 6th. A dedicated supporter and champion of contemporary art in craft, his impact especially on the wood art world was significant, sustained, and profound. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Mikki, and the rest of his family and friends. He will be terribly missed by those who loved him.
