Hi all

Info re Okra - Richard Golding sold Okra to Dean Hopkins and Karinna Sellars, two local glassmakers, in around 2007 although he stayed on for a couple of years in an advisory role.  Okra continued to trade for some time after Richard left to found Station Glass but the Okra partnership split up and I understand all the equipment was put into storage. The web site is still running - I assume to sell off existing stock??

On a lighter vein - Richard is now creating some fantastic paperweights - three of which are shown here

Best regards

Derek
