And from deep in the stash, from a looooong time ago - Caliente glass - pulled rods of - I think furnace glass. I don't know if Caliente is still in business - there is a Caliente Hot Shop - but I don't think there is a connection - links I have found are dead.
Caliente was a 96 COE - so it sits with other incompatible glass in my stash - now that everything I do is one colour at a time, I can haul this stuff out and play with it.
This is a really pretty pink, no livering, very nice. The rods are skinny - stringer size actually. In theory - it should be a little stiffer, as a 96 COE, but I didn't really notice a difference.
