Hold on there cowboy , that's an artist you're talking about .
I'll buy a couple of the rejects. How much does he want for a good one ?
Next time bring his favorite booze with you and ask him to share it with you , after he's done blowing.


His favorite was beer, and he were sharing vodka the night before.
That message was written just after I got home and I was very irritated. I thought we'd have a lot more time to work on getting the glasses right, and it just didn't turn out that way. I'm less irritated now, but still not completely positive. I'm hopeful though. He does make some very wonderful stuff. I'm not sure how much he'll want per glass if more people start wanting them. I'll have to ask. Shipping from Japan will not be cheap of course.

I guess I sounded way too negative when I came home, but I was disapointed and very tired.

OK, latest update time.

The glassblower from Nagasaki has been working from my descriptions, the pictures I gave him, and the previous attempts, and has made a glass. I can't wait to see it first hand, cause I like what I see in the picture! Hopefully I'll be getting a few in my hands before too long.

That definitely looks like a keeper. Very nice.

Unfortunately no, not yet. He sent me this picture with his cell phone. When I can actually get my greedy little paws on it, I'll be sure to take some pictures to send! Empty, with absinthe, and during louche maybe?

He's been making a more and more glasses. Recently he came to a crafts show just down the road from me. I didn't even know he'd be there. I was selling neckties I'd made and he came up to my booth. Didn;t even recognize him at first. He brought one of his glasses for me to check out and one the second day I took him my Absinthe glass for him to get a good look at the proportions of the glass and his isn't far off. I got some pictures, I just have to figure out how to post them again. It's been a few years. He's curious if anyone here would be interested in buying them and how much you;d think they're worth. Neither of us have experience shipping things like this internationally so that's something we'll have to figure out.
I'll try and post some pictures in an hour or so.

Ok, links work. I'd rather stick the actual pictures in the post, but I can't remember how at the moment :)
