The class was really wonderful. I've mostly had access to a polarimeter since I first learned how to make trident seals in your class, Pete, and I can't imagine making color without one. I think the point was to show the way with a pro tool. The ring test is easy enough to fool around with and make on your own in the studio. When I worked for Ed Skeels he had a nice cylinder mold and some dial calipers and knew quite a bit about what his glass was doing. It would have been hard to teach the class like that though. John and Mark did a really good job of teaching everyone how to be their own guide when making glasses. I can't imagine it being taught any other way. The class had glass makers of varying experience but the great thing about it was there was something for everyone.

Nice pics Josh. Look at those colors!
