Thanks for posting the link to your new site. I've taken a lengthy jaunt through your creative history and think you've made a significant contribution to the glass arts. Really sorry I never met you in the flesh but such is life. Most of all I've enjoyed your postings and your fracturing of the language. I'm still trying to find a Blanthorn to english dictionary.

Thank you for your generosity and taking the time to share your knowledge with the rest of us. Like many I have enjoyed your posts and learning the language of Blanthorn. Your work is beautiful! And thank you for the peek into the Rabbit Hole that you went down in the pursuit of making it. It is a testament to your creativity and determination to make "your work"! Thank you! It is inspiring!

It would be around the 15th of April. I may try to bring Scott Benefield with me, an all around great guy from N. Ireland. I hope we can connect with you in still semi reasonable shape and if not, just tell me. I have loved your contributions here and will sorely miss them, and you.
