Learning to love glass enamel review by Lindsay Blankenship on 10/5/2018
I have never had a lot of success with enamels, so I am always looking for help and advice. This video was very enjoyable and I feel a lot more confident now. I cannot say thank you enough for bringing the teachers to me!!! I live too far away to attend class, so videos like this one are an AMAZING resource. Thank you!!!

Simply Perfect review by Jacki Pfeffer on 9/19/2018
I absolutely loved this video. The history, the student samples, Peter's personality (just to name a few) combine to create an education video that feels like you are learning from a friend. Even experienced enamel artists will enjoy this video. If you have found yourself intimidated by enamels the information in this video will put your mind at ease and give you the process and confidence to start. On lazy studio afternoons I find myself playing the video just because it makes me happy :)
