Hi Adrian,

I really like the fabric. Nice find! I would be interested in some yardage should it be available for purchase. I would like to use it for a valance in my office. I would appreciate any information you have on the source.

Thank you.

Regards,

Hi Joey,

I really appreciate your feelings on faith-based holidays. In this day and age of "politically correct" statements, I feel in the minority when I buck the system and wish everyone a  "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays".  I do so with the spirit of an open heart, and desire to "include" everyone, no matter their faith, to the joyous celebration of my faith-based holiday.

I wish you, your family and friends a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and extend the same warm wishes to all on the the forum.

Best wishes,

Toni-Lee

Hi Pin,

Absolutely wonderful! The music is so ethereal and highlights the beautiful bottles adding to the visual treat. You brightened this bleak, rainy day in New England. Great work.

Hi Rube,

Your bottle is very close in appearance to mine! The body of my bottle appears to be more round than yours but other than that it's a match. Nice to know we share a similar bottle.  Thank's for sharing!

Best regards,

Hi Steven and Joey,

An absolutely fabulous bottle! The workmanship is superb and and the contrast of the gold on jet is an exceptional combination. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece of art.

Hi Adrian,

Good explanation of how to copy Rube's bottle in modern times. I am an enamelist who also began fusing glass a few years ago. Today's kilns with reliable temperature controls combined with good instincts on the part of the craftsman can prevent distortion of cold-worked applied glass. As you indicated, the lower temperature used to tack fuse glass does not distort the glass if done properly.

I have such respect of glass workers and blowers of the past that had none of the controls and information available today. True artisians. I can honestly say that I am in awe of what they accomplished. From goblets to snuff bottles, a craft that is as complex as it is beautiful.

Regards,

Toni-Lee

Hi Joey,

What a great story! We can always count on you for the most exciting adventures.

Hey Arne,

Welcome to the forum!

I too am a member of the "I love dragons club." I am forever counting dragon toes, trying to distinguish just where this particular dragon hales from. All kidding aside, there is nothing more wonderful than a dragon wrapped around a snuff bottle.

Regards,

Toni-Lee
