First, starting immediately, the studio will be open by appointment only (or if
Linda or I happen to be there). The best way to contact me is by phone (call or
text) at 575-635-2829 or email (

in Cimarron much of the summer so if you stop by the studio and we aren't open,
you can call or text and if we are in town we'll meet you there.

Second, Linda and I have sold the Wind Bell portion of the business. If you are in
the market for a wind bell, use contact below:
