Whitefriars canes...............
« on: July 17, 2008, 12:15:47 PM »
Hi, I have been stuck in Lincoln for the past few days with a problem with my boat battery. I therefore took refuge in a marina and took the opportunity to fuse some canes onto clear glass. I think this is a good way to handle and display these thin sections. I still have some more to do but have now got a bit bored with the job. Perhaps you can tell me if I got the Queen's head the wrong way round !!!!!!!

Nice. I'm looking for a source of Whitefriar canes to use in a fundraiser for Wheaton Arts. Don't suppose you know of any with whom you can put me in touch? Wheaton has the only operational Victorian glass furnace. (
