    ... incorporated carved pieces of walnut into the work. They were really beautiful. Some of the glass reminded us of the super high quality work done by our friend, Al Garber, in New Haven, whose lamps, sun catchers and other decorative pieces still adorn our house.

    (we'll add pictures tomorrow.I hope.)
