We can't have this kind of lampwork dying out either. It all but did in the 1960s There were only a handful of us left and most of them were over 70. I was the youngest of the bunch back then.

Thank you for the video, I enjoyed watching you work. I particularly learned something watching you shape the tail so that he would stand up.

I'm going to try one, although I am not going to count on it making it all the way.
I'll try to remember to post what I get.

OK, I downloaded, and am getting ready to watch with note paper in front of me to sketch & take notes. I just wish I had a computer out in my shed, but even writing things down helps me to remember.

Eileen, my son and his family are in San Antonio! Maybe we could carpool there and we could watch him make fishes and I could visit with my son, DIL, and grandkids!
