Thanks Blue, I'll see what i can do. Might have to be on the end that now says LYNAS. I'll try it there but sometimes it gets messed with in the firing. I could letter on the slide glaze but that would need to be on a different color background. I'll see what works best with some trials. Stay tuned....
Hi Blue, nothing new as of right now. I'm teaching a tea pot class and will be making many new porcelain objects. I can't stop making the little fellows, so more slides are in the offing. I know you want blue ones, any size or style needs? I'll custom make some for you if i know what you'd like. Thanks for asking Blue. I'll Cook something up for you.... Dave
Hey Blue, ya business is going good. Not that $10 slides will get me rich but it's fun to meet more of the Nation and get some good feedback. I think my slides are getting better and more useful too. I like a project. I'll be sending some to Queensland Aus. on Monday. Wonder what the post will be? They wanted $400 to ship a lap slide guitar there. The garden is going great guns too. Raspberries are coming fast, soon tomatoes galore. I'll post photos as soon as the next firing comes to pass. Keep sliding Blue. .... Dave

Hey Blue, sure, pay when you can. I'm glad you like the batch. I've got some new ideas for the next batch. I've got pinky size for 3 stringers. Short. And a Stevens style bar. I made two of those today. Cheers, Dave
