My dear friend Paul introduced me to the joy of glass and the extraordinary people that create with this remarkable material. I would never have discovered this passion without him. He simply changed my life. I am forever in his debt.

* Eldakleja (pronounced eld-ah-clay-ah) literally translated means "fire columbine" in Swedish. It is the Swedish name for the western columbine that grows in the Sierra Nevada of California.   Glass is spelled with a single 's' in Swedish. With two it means ice cream.  I am grateful to Thor, CAM, Treg, Ben and everyone else who supports this adventure. Columbine photo credit goes to Erika and Sigurd.
