I got halfway through college for engineering, then I ran out of money for tuition (and I didn't really want to be an engineer any more anyway) so I decided to start lampworking as a profession... I've always wanted to find a use for those damn handles, but aside from using them as handles again (crappier the second time around) or as rods for removing glass from a work in process, I just can't think of any (maybe a very fragile windchime xD). At any rate, I do have some neat glassware coming up. My strong suit lies more on the technical/scientific side rather than the artistic side of lampworking (at least at the moment), but everyone has their talents. Whenever I can afford a lathe I will be in heaven. If anyone has ideas or needs for custom pieces for their ground glass fittings, I'm happy to work with you, and if they're popular I'll consider adding them to my normal lineup. I'm not exactly sure how much I want to include accessories for other manufacturer's vapes along side my own, but keeping in mind the difference between my products and theirs, they may be compatible enough.
