You can email Val at


Thanks! I've been sending them all the info, it's much appreciated, all
this help.

I don't know what they'll make of it all, I think it's a lot more info than
they had thought was out there. Nothing like a bit of horizon expansion,
eh?

Aw! I have to give credit where credit is due, however. I sent Kandice my
list of LAMPWORKING SUPPLIERS (GLASS) links, and told her to redo them....to
eliminate ones she deemed unworthy, add some I'd not included, etc. She did a
*stellar* job. Your glass suppliers in the UK should find that listing to be
very helpful indeed.

Of course, I get most of my Links from this worthy NG, you know. So credit
yourselves.

:-)
The first link I sent them!

I figured I could get as wide a spectrum of ideas and they could take it
from there, but I warned them to be prepared to spend hours with your links.

, was looking for people
outside the US to be reps for her glass and frits

huh???

"her" glass and frits?
excuse - me --- but all she is doing is buying bulk and repackaging --
it isn't HER GLASS

heck - Reichenbach is MADE overseas for gawd's sake!

SU -- they would NOT WANT TO BUY from VAL???? -- she is not a main
wholesaler... she's buying it and marking it up and re- selling it....

Kugler and Reichenbach etc - can be bought by any company direct from the
suppliers.... or at least from a major wholesaler/importer like Spruce Pine
Batch or Olympic, here in the US.

You see? That's why I asked here. I'm not a lampworker, and in the UK
there's no network of people to talk to like there is in the US, especially
face to face, so Mike and I rely heavily, and I mean HEAVILY on this group
and the people who know their stuff for the really important information.

Thanks. I'll send this info on too.

I'm trying to find Val's actual post, but I believe that she's not looking
for distributors for the frits she offers (which she knows anyone can get if
they're willing to buy a kilo of a single color) BUT for the glass she's
having custom-pulled based on her own experiments. She's starting to stock
it in warehouse-sized quantity now, instead of smaller batches. I know
that's making the guys who pull the glass in NZ a lot happier, and I for one
am overjoyed....the cost should come down and I won't have to treat every
rod like it might be my last. G

That is good news indeed. I have liked some of the latest batches coming
from her.
