Default Lampwork needed

Hello, If this is not in the right section feel free to move it to the right section.

My name is Jerry and I'm with a non-profit tropical fish club for discus fish.
We are having our biennial show June 20-22, 2014 in Austin, Texas. The person who has made our awards in the past is not able to do it this year. So this is a request to see if we can have someone make them using glassblowing. Our show website is http://nadaaustin2014.com/ By going to our site you will get the idea of what a discus fish looks like. They are flat like a pancake and we will need them to be approximately 3 inches in diameter. We will need 23 of them made and we will be gluing them to a plaque so they will only need to be colored on one side. If your interested you can contact me at

zeusdog@webtv.net


The person who made them in the past made them out of clay in a mold he fabricated, he then painted them by hand. I have pictures of what they looked like. I know they will be different when made with blown glass. Thanks, Jerry

Love discus; bred angels way back when, but never did discus because I was afraid I'd never get the water perfect.

I wish I was good enough to make 23 discus that look similar LOL but I suspect they would all have their own VERY unique personalities if I tried, and my torch doesn't do 3" beads well anyway.

But a few pics of your babies would be awesome!
