Everthing in the world is dangerous and respect is a good plan. I think what Dave is doing is fantastic.
I agree. I just think it's important to share some of the potentials for problems. I will use whatever is necessary to maintain quality, so if that means antimony oxide, then that's what it means. I'm used to using good ventilation when blowing borosilicate colors, so adding the protective gear is not that much of a step up.

Hell, I think I'm safer taking a glassblowing lesson than I am driving to work!

And yeah, Dave is definitely doing some cool stuff. Pics, Dave!
