In case anyone is intrested Rufus Jacoby died last August(2008). He taught silversmithing in the DC area for about 35 years, he also taught at Catholic Univeristy during the summer for years. He had an article about him in the Silver Magazine in 2007.
He was 96 at the time of his death. He was a total craftsman second to none!
I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you. To find examples of Rufus's work all you had to do was to go to the Silver magazine that I gave you in my first post. It not only had photo's of his work but also had his bio.He was a silversmith before you started SAS, maybe that was the problem.
