I've read several of the positive reviews. They're impressive. Thus our review is a bit "off color". We were given the opportunity to create a paperweight by our daughter (North of Seattle) as a gift. The resident glass 'artist' had my wife specify the paperweight she'd prefer. She did so, and the procedure began. It was handled well, and professionally, but when the completed (and cooled) paperweight was sent to us in Roseburg, it was virtually black -- none of the colors requested -- and even without a balanced flat base. Thus our review is positive for the experience itself, but quite negative for the result. When my wife called about the item, the young woman who answered told her -- essentially -- 'that's the way it is'. We're disappointed.
