Vernon Wang
Vernon Wang Class of 1963
Passed Feb 12, 2014
After living in northern Canada for over 30 years, Vernon came back to Arizona, proving he liked extremes in weather. He eventually married and moved to Vail, Arizona where he lived very quietly and serenely on their land until his wife's death. He continued with the lifestyle, but alone except for his many friends. In the last 15 or so years, he fashioned silver and gold jewelry by hand. The following is from his business card:

“Pounding Silver”

With hacksaw cleave I the innocent silver bar. With torch heat I red the sawn slab. Then, with dire hammer, doughty anvil Pound, Aye, Pound. Silver becomes hot - red, grey. Slimmer, wider, longer, harder. Heat again, Pound. And Again, pound, and again... Anon, I snips, I chisels, and wield. I The Fret, saw, pliers, vise, drill, punch...Transmogrification ensues. The silver will have its way, and I mine.
We try to agree which way to go, when to stop. I like my “stuff”. You?
Vernon Wang, Artificer
