I first saw Hokett’s stuff two years ago at the last Contemporary Handweaver’s of Texas conference. I was blown away by how beautiful it was, but I felt too poor to get anything (not that it was exorbitantly priced mind you, the handheld frame loom was $20, I was just very broke). I saw his booth again at Kid ‘n Ewe that November. I stopped to tell him how wonderful I thought his work was. He gave me a drop spindle that he had left over from a commissioned door prize project. I remember thinking to myself if I were infinitely rich and didn’t have to work and could do anything with my life, I would apprentice myself to Hokett. That Christmas my mom gave me a $20 bill earmarked for that frame loom. So when I went to the weaving conference this time I knew I was at least coming home with that handheld frame loom. I also picked up all the little tools that go with it, a drop spindle and a nostepinne.
Hokett signs his works and labels them with what type of wood they are. Unfortunately he doesn’t have a website.
