I have known Richard for over....... lets just say 'decades' .....

he was one of my first glass instructors! waaay back when most of you were toddlers (except Peter.. I just dont seem to have a vision Peter as a 'toddler' )

Richard has a photo(s) of me in his book of my FIRST E-V-E-R GATHER OF GLASS!!! soo how cool is that!!! ( I am sure I look really 'dorky' ! )
and he has written a super glass book... full of 'knowledge'
and other 'tid-bits' a must to any glass book collection....

Reserve your copy today!!

Hi Cynthia!

I went to his website and didn't see anything about offhand glassblowing. (That's my particular glass interest.)

Could you tell a little more about what's going to be in the book?

it is MOstly fused glass.. but a lot Richards techniques apply direcly to HOt Glass.. some of the 'tricks' I used to do I could credit
back to Richard! his use of color, form and Story Line is seriouly outrageous!
