Something I was thinking as well is we have an awesome Renaissance fair here in Minneapolis and there are two or three glass blowers there. Might be worth while to ask if they can make something by hand and specifications for the traditional stem size. Would be pretty bad ass.
well im getting a degree in "crafts/material studies" (art) concentrating in glass and metals so i would be forming all the parts of the stem by hand, silver soldering them all together, etc etc.
as to getting a glass blower to make something for you like that, getting exacts is hard in glass blowing, even for a good glass blower and then any decent glass blower is going to charge you a good amount (a quality one off glass vase is going to probably cost over 100 bucks easy)
