As a movie buff
I recall seeing one or more Xander type items - can you find out if they sell to or offer their items to cinema?

This is gorgeous. I wonder if they are in diff. tones of blue and also red? Like to see some pictures. People who want to settle down at a single place would love such an idea of Beds or shower areas, kitchens or even living room full of glass. Dont you Bridgett?

I bet Rick Blenko helped with the designing of these, he was the most talented of Blenko's designers. Do you know if he did? How is he? Update Hillary?
Very forward thinking Rick Blenko was a blessing to Blenko Glass.
