For the last thirty five years I have had a dual career of builder and glass blower. I have always hoped I would die at the glory hole but now that seems unlikely. The price of gas has gone through the roof and rightly so. Currently I am on sabbatical and am an elderly but full time builder.
I have been but am no longer principally a stoppered bottle maker. When I start up again I shall make only profile bottles, dishes, goblets and maybe sculptures.
