"I got the DVD today...already watched it and have a rose in the kiln.  Love the was so easy.   I have had to rely on DVD's since there are no classes in my area at all...not to many lampworkers period.  Just started making beads last summer so it has been a long and some times frustrating journey to this point."  Colleen - Michigan of Flame Kissed Art Glass.

Congrats Celine!     Celine Pederson, Sequim, WA  of  glassbeads4u

"Now, as to the Video, and feedback, I really like the video. It was clear, concise and not confusing in the slightest. I must mention that the choice of  background music was PERECT for this  I would like to thank you for sharing your technique on the peraza sculpted rose.  I just purchased the dvd yesterday and I've been making roses :)))  Just in time for mothers day.   I lampwork using hothead and yet to set up a nortel minor burner.  However, I found your technique very easy to follow with awesome results and just using my hothead torch.   May I inquire as to the availability of the medalion sculpted rose?Also do u have other teaching dvd material on lampwork? U R an excellent teacher.   Marife "Rifie" Hogan - Australia Visit Rifie's site at:
