    Jabo *J.E.R.K.* 3/4" KILLERS!!

    For now, I'm just gonna tease ya with the very first to come off of the machine yesterday... The objective... to get aventurine and oxblood on the SAME marble Things just got better and better as the day progressed. Several colors of high quality glass and three colors of aventurines were used, gold, blue and green throughout different stages of the run. *J* Jim King, *E* Ed Parsons, *R* Rick Hall and *K* Kevin Plummer are the financial partners. On hand to participate was Darlene Hall, Chris Crawford, Jim's son in law, Phil Konopacky, Jim's neighbor, Royal Morse and myself. Boxed sets are being designed, a crafted wooden box with lasered names of the financial backers and the name officially will be
    *J* *O* for the marble, *K* *E* *R* instead of JERK.

    Yes. They did not want me to go home empty handed.

    Here is one of the test marbles that Jim King made prior to the run to test glass compatibilities with two aventurines. Fracturing can be a big problem.

    Forget the respirator, get a pacemaker

    edit; No Al, there were relatively few cranberries and white/green avents. There is aprox. 50 different species in this run and not too many of any one specie because the guys kept adding different colors of glass and aventurine as the day progressed. I just posted pics above of different styles and have just begun.
