Anyone making round blocks these days?

I see that Gary's hotblocktools.com website is still online, so does that mean someone else has taken over that biz since he's passed? If not, anyone know if round blocks are made for sale by someone these days? I've contacted someone at Blockhead tools who say they are working on some to add to their lineup but aren't sure when they'll be offered. Thanks.

Art Reed makes a fine product and is really a nice guy as well.

Those were really nice blocks. And very reasonably priced.

Can you buy directly from Art? His website hasn't changed since 2004! No blocks listed on it....

Part of what I love about Art. He does indeed make them and he also makes blowing molds. I think his clear glass Jersey style was some of the nicest table work I can every recall.
You just gotta ask... which I just did. Lets see what he says.

When I worked at Wheaton, a man named Bob Broschart would make us round blocks, getting on in years and certainly didn't have a website - but if you're interested I can get his number / status from Donny.

Here's a video of him turning molds and blocks from the NJ Public Television-

Art is indeed still making blocks, molds and other tools. Here's his email that I used to get in touch:
artlindareed@catskill.net

I have asked him to make me a few molds for the whisky glasses I am popping the tops off of.
