Working solo to Make a goblet

Bill G is my hero for working solo . Is there any one who works solo making a goblet but with a different method to Bill.

Not goblet but we have a person that rents time at our shop that does incalmo and paperweight incalmo vases solo. Amazing to watch.

Working solo is all I've ever done, more out of necessity than anything else. That includes stemware.

With a garage, I know of very intricate work done solo. Otherwise , timing is really critical.

I just like it because I can always find my tools where I left them.

Thanks for the replies. So it seems that the difference is in the use of a garage.
The timing part is key for sure but recognizing the heat in the glass is not easy.
I need to keep it going and not shut down for such long periods.

A garage is certainly helpful with multi piece work, but a will finds a way. Watching Toso with a killer gaffer and every assistant at the beckoning was a complete contrast to Bill alone with a hot box at his feet. Good glass helps too...

A small color box that has a top loading door is far more useful than a garage if you are blowing solo.
