as to production work i would like to see them with simple, traditional color designs (thats just my style, i like traditional glass blowing on the large scale so i like the traditional stuff). i would like to see some simple thin lines twisted up, a nice rotocello would be really cool too. honestly though lamp workers are a dime a dozen and most of the suck at what they do. glass working is not easy and a lot of glass workers put junk out and people buy it because they dont know better
i agree on almost every point, I think that most of the glass blowers are primarliy into blowign NHT items, which this guys is as well, but i have seen his work, and i he has a lot of pieces that are in the same kind of colorations and styles i am looking for. I told him specifically that i want to avoid drawing a paralell with my tips and the NHT culture, and he totally understood. I am meeting him sunday night after work to talk some more and show him around a hookah.
