    That's such sad news.
    I've greatly admired the becher's work for a long time now. Hope Hilla will continue to carry the torch!

    He actually died on Friday. I just found out about it on this blog here. I really just started to love their work. I even looked through one of their books late last week.

    Sad, sad news, for Hilla and all of us. I've always admired their work, and their influence is a lasting one.

    That's really sad news as I really like their work. Too bad I never ran into them on an industrial plant as they frequented Belgium too.:sad:
