We are excited! This Thursday night (as of this writing on Oct. 13th, 2008) Bella Forte Glass is going to be featured on OETA. Randy and Susan were extremely nice - like bend over backward nice! - Like bend over backward "limbo" nice! Like, "We really liked them alot!" nice! It's supposed to show @ 8:00 pm C.S.T. on OETA TV on the show called, "Gallery". We haven't seen it yet but I know they really did a great job, I saw a tiny part while they were editing it in the studio. I don't know if it's gonna be on the front part of the show or the back part of the show. Can't wait to see it. *Everybody that watches the program and calls my cell phone gets a free blown glass platter! *(Not really just messin' with you) but you could call and tell me you saw it.

Zanfirico Canne work

Micah and I have been working on making zanfirico canne. This last Saturday was our 2nd try at it. Then we wanted to get enough to make a "lace" handkerchief bowl. Recently Marty Lockstone came by the restaurant, saw the glass and gave me a call. Marty is from Weatherford and we knew each other back in high school. He graduated a year before me at Weatherford. He wanted to know if he could come and watch us blow glass. He came over Saturday and was good help. He helped us pull canne and helped us with the zanfirico bowl. It's been nice to get reacquainted. Here's some photos of the canne, the bowl and of a vase we have been trying to pull off. It's blue, about 13 1/2" tall with a yellow coil around it.
