On Saturday we drove to Rubicon and had a pot of tea with James Thompson the maker of Blackwoods crystal. It was great to see his spotless studio and meet the man behind the glass. It really is the most beautiful crystal, unmatched by any I have used.
1 picked up about 25kg of glass, one colour 'Iris' was $55 a kilo! James told me that some of the ingredients he uses are over $1000 a kilo!
