John Maas, as these photos of some of his works show, is an excellent woodcarver, no stranger to worldwide web news. One of his carved pendants, a dragon rampant, was worn and shown by Dave Price, famed weatherman on TV Channel 5 with Jim Ryan. Dave was raving about his visit to see the Maas carvings in John's New Jersey studio workshop. There was a fuss by Channel 5 about free publicity when advertisers pay thousands of dollars to get on US national TV. Coincidentally, Dave left Channel 5 and went national to CBS Ch. 2.
