If you can gather the glass to make the foot directly on to the stem, you can do an awful lot. It takes about four hours to learn to use a footing tool and to make the gather well.

As a potter also i loved being taught to do that and also using wet paper to make a foot.

Who remembers Brioni ?? He would buy cases of factory made wine glasses and would cut the stems off, and epoxy the tops onto stems he made. He was like the Ron Jeremy of wholesale craft shows.

Did you know he's ( was) Steve Fellerman's first cousin?

He was a Trump style marketer. I remember his speech at the Rosen when he proposed the entire glass group give itself an award. He actually really knew his fraudulent shit well. Stems from Pier One and he made the cups and glued them on.

How'd that chapeau turn out for ya, buckaroo?
