I have proposed to Akiko and Sally that a new web site could be started, which would offer a far greater insight into the heritage of Japanese glass. This has been agreed upon in principle, but there are a few issues to be considered – not least the time to develop it!

Having seen some of Akiko's work, it should be fascinating to see this develop.

Awww, I was just rereading this fascinating thread while looking forward to the new post, and that's it?  I guess I've done no better!  And it's been fun to peruse after all this time, so thank you, Frank.  I still wonder about the wheel-less engraving method.  Maybe there's a museum specimen online somewhere...
