I emailed him(her?) through his website to see if he would teach in the US. I will let you know if I hear back. Though he probably uses a Japanese torch and satake glass I would guess, not sure if it would translate to a dual fuel torch. I am going to mess around and see if I can do a jelly like his. I have Mary Lockwoods Jellyfish tut so I am going to see if I can alter her technique slightly to achive a similar effect. Wish I wasn't at work and was at the torch instead!

I will when I get back to the torch, Monday night is the earliest time. I think I am going to build a jellyfish cane and top it with a murrini. I have CIM Cirrius, Marshmellow, Halong bay, and Peace. I think a combination of those in a cane will make a dreamy Jellyfish. Though things never seem to work out as well in real life as in my head lol!
