You are addressing a good bunch of us, William. :)
Some of your later work has appeared here for identification, and as I've been following Mr. Harris's work, I was aware of your part in this breakthrough technique. I hope it has been mentioned in all cases when your name has appeared.
That's a fascinating snippet of info. about your choice of payment. A difficult decision to make for you, but in retrospect, probably the right one. 

We'd love to see any pictures of your work that you are willing to share.  :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Good to hear from you, Adam.
I understand from my spies that you've moved down to the Surrey/ Hampshire border,

I'm using Stuart Wiltshire's workshop in Weymouth. He's an ex-Dartington crystal maker
who got fed up with making 500 straight things a day! Google StuartWiltshire glass.
It must be 26 years...when the weather improves, I'll come up and buy you a pint!

I live in Dorchester with Celia and our seven Children!! They're not all here at once though.

More later, William.

Hi Folks,

Found this fascinating thread and thought you may like to see this delicate little beauty by William which I recently found - signed to base but undated. I hope William's still around on here to have a peek too!

Cheers, Ben
