Other Thoughts : I feel fortunate that I was able to attend Nathan’s class; he is an awesome instructor. The information and techniques shared has given me the confidence to believe I can do more with glass. I will be taking more of his classes to continue to build on the skills I learned in “Murrine Effect”. Nathan, thank you for the knowledge you shared.

Pros : Nathan is a wonderful artist and instructor. I feel I received a bounty of information on the full range of glass art from cutting to firing to cold working. I don't think I have ever obtained as much useful info in any other workshop that I have taken. Thank you so much for bringing him here and I hope that I will see future classes offered by Nathan that I will be able to participate in. I commend Delphi on offering a great range of glass colors and the generous amounts for our use. The staff, as always, is great to work with.
Cons : Delphi needs to invest perhaps in a better set up for the coldworking area. Regular maintenance of the equipment is also needed. We did experience "flooding" issues with the water for saws and some more plumbing would certainly be helpful. Carrying buckets is not ideal.
