   My Pledge as Your Mask-Maker 
Many people demand guarantees to accompany their purchases.*
As a consumer myself I understand, appreciate and respect that.

But let's all be realistic here:
I cannot guarantee anything unless I have full control of it.

The two (2) things that I can guarantee regarding my masks are:
1)  the quality of the materials of my masks.
2)  the quality of the craftsmanship of my masks.

These masks are the result of a love for masks,
and an almost fanatical devotion to detail and fantasy.

I make every mask as though it were going into my private collection,
and I take great pride in the originality of each of my masks and
in the authenticity of my designs and creations.


* A gentleman once requested a guarantee that his mother would like the mask he'd planned to buy for her.  Knowing nothing of the lady in question I was unable to grant any such guarantee.  But this brief tale has a happy ending -- he took a deep breath and made his selection, and ultimately she loved the mask her son had me create for her.

Another patron wanted my promise that her one-of-a-kind mask would never be copied by other mask-makers -- but I have no such control over the actions of others,... alas.
