    I assume thia is the right place for them, i may post a couple in the vapcap thread too if a mod could advise me thatd be great. Anyway....
    Im a part time glassblower from the uk and i make unique vapcap stems. At some point cheaper high function low cost 'production' models will appear but im still fine tuning my tooling ao until thats there ill just be posting as and when i finish stems. Sorry for the bad quality pics and i cant seem to get one of the pics to load.

    Ill start with two that are available (blue stardust and amber pjrple) and then will fish out a few pics of some of the older ones which reside in peoples collections for yiur appreciation.

    I spend quite a lot of my time over on IG as its how i male my living so wont be here as often as there. But feel free to message me here or there if youd like to add one to your collection.

    My ig is @glass_charlie

    Hi thanks for the kind words. Im asking £35 plush shipping on the amber purple one. It doesnt have a carb but if it was a dealbreaker i could add one. Ive accepted you on IG sorry i keep my account private as i post about my life as well as my work and prefer people to have to at least ask permission before they view my feed. Thanks again!

    You got some nice work there. Particularly like the one with the matching jar.
    Am an ex glass blower (lamp worker technically) myself, from the UK too, although haven't been behind a lamp for best part of 30 years...

    I'm beginning to think I should make an instagram acc, seems to be a lot of cool stuff going on there.

    No I hate carbs and don't know why dynavap don't have a carbles option. I'm on holiday in New Zealand at the moment bit I still want to purchase it but I don't want it sitting in the post office as I still have a few weeks before I'm back but could I pay for it soon and let you know when to post it if that's ok. I'm in the uk too so it works out perfect for me. Thanks and keep up the good work. Really looking forward to seeing more from you.

    These are fabulous. You won't have trouble selling these! Some of these are very unique

    Hey you should shoot me a dm, what part of the country are you from? IG is a great way to view other lampworkers art and to display your own. Its amazing how far the craft has come.in recent years. Were even got some pretty big boro events this year in the uk!

    Thank you. I am just enjoying myself vaping and melting sand so sometimes the results are def unique!

    As the owner of 3 of Charlie's first 5 VC stems, I should probably chip in :) Any questions, just ask!

    I've had my stems for about a month now and they're a joy to use.. And not bad looking either ;) Particularly nice on a sunny day..
