They can buy directly from Bullseye; they'll want to call them and set
up a wholesale (or maybe distributor) account, which is easy:

They should call Uroboros and see whether they're eligible for a
distrinutorship or, if not, who their closest distributor is:

Since Reichenbach is in Germany, it makes no sense to buy frit that was
first shipped to the US: they can contact them for the nearest
distributor: http://www.proximedia.com/local/0100..._englisch.html

Gaffer has a new UK distributor, how convenient!:

Kugler has an incredible selection, most of which isn't available to us
in the US (yet): http://www.kuglercolors.de/index.htm

Best of luck to your supplier!

I've been talking to the person I'm buying glass from for Mike, and we had a
chat about several things. Once we got the shoes and sealing wax thing out
of the way, the talk turned to more interesting things like finding cool
glass and frit.

They buy Moretti glass but aren't really too aware (since they don't hang
out on computers like some people do... *innocent look*) of all the tasty
bits of glass available to the US market. It isn't exactly a glass desert
here but it's definitely not glass heaven. I'd like to help change that if
I can in some small way. *putting on my Glass Enabler badge*

So, to give them some idea of where they could look to buy in bulk for
shipment to the UK, can any of you lovely lampworkers out there give me some
pointers for glass and frit suppliers? It would be a big boost in many
ways, as they'd be exposed to more types of glass, and we'd get more types
available to us from them, and other people who want glass could see the new
and cool things that the US has in abundance, and I don't mean candy corn!

Thanks to everyone in advance who can give me some directions to send on to
them. I also said I'd send them links to beads using the frits, so I
actually have an excuse to surf today! :-D

-Su (I'm not doing this just for me and Mike, oh no! I want MORE people in
the UK to have access to cool glass. Honest!)

Lots of useful stuff which I will send on directly!

We had a chat today, and he's been looking at the list I sent him, so that
should keep him busy for a while. :-) Apparently Sooz has some lists that
are pretty good that might catch his eye. :-)
