Schneider’s lush netsuke are tiny treasures expertly crafted with astonishing detail. It is hard to comprehend how he achieves such a high level of realism in the diminutive sculptures, most of which can be held in the palm of your hand. I can’t help but see the work of a master in his creations. What do you think? If an artist feels he/she is a master, does that thinking act as a barrier to her/his ability to produce more great work?
