Put it like this, if I saw it for sale cheap I would buy it without knowing who made it. That's a compliment because bargain is one of the criteria for most of my paperweight collecting. (Chinese are mostly excluded)

it was supposed to be round but i thought i would be different and place a bump on the top  ;D honest. the glass blower makes it look so easy. i can see in about 50 years someone coming on here asking who made that work of art  :24:
thanks for the input

Hi Stew - Nice one

Hi all,

For those of you who may interested, Keith is talking about the Fifth International Festival of Glass which will take place in Stourbridge in August 2012.

I am hoping to be 'handling glass' at the festival, too. Also, they mention 'Masterclasses' for those of you who may be more advanced than complete beginner-me.

Here is the link to the web page:
