In Search of Briar Root

My second trip to Taggia Italy to visit with Mimmo, an exceptional Briar cutter, in March of 2018 was to share the experience with other craftsman that work with Briar Root Burl.  It started out with lots of REAL coffee, food, and a hike up into the mountains to dig out a few burls.  There was some fishing on the Ligurian Sea, crafting in Mimmo's Workshop, in depth tour of the sawmill, and so much PIZZA!  Here are some photos from the trip.
