Dear Peter,

In all honesty, I cannot call this a lamp. The design and craftsmanship are
beyond my expectation.
Thank you for this exquisite piece of art. It will be enjoyed many times
each day.
Photos next week,
My best,

Arrived back safely at 15.40, not too much traffic about, except on the A3 where spray was quite a problem. To say that Inge is happy with both lamps is a definite understatement. If she were a dog her tail would still be wagging. We tried the Wisteria with 40 watt bulbs but decided it works better with 25 watt. We think the effect is better with less bright light.
I will keep your cloth bags until we meet again.
Thank you both for the excellent craftsmanship and also for the most enjoyable lunch, pity I could only enjoy one beer.
We wish you and the family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Best regards
Steve & Inge

Dear Peter,
the lamp base arrived at our house about 45 minutes ago.  The lamp base is
fabulous!  We really like it, the workmanship is truly outstanding.  It
arrived here without a nick or any damage whatsoever, thanks to the
wonderful way it was packed.  My husband wants me to be sure that I mention
that he has never seen anything packed for shipment as well as this lamp
stand.  We are also very happy that you suggested getting the sockets for
the light bulbs.  They look so beautiful.  It would have been a shame not
to get them, they add so much to the total look of the lamp stand.
Jim also likes the soldering iron, I know it will work out for him when he
starts modifying our shade to fit the Odyssey ring.
Also, thank you so very much for the transformer, it arrived a few days ago
from Los Angeles.  We like the pigtail top, it goes very well with the
shade.  As soon as we have everything set the way we want, we have our son
take a picture with his digital camera and then I will send it to you.
We were wondering what we need the copper wire for?
The lamp stand is so beautiful and very well made.  Everything is perfect
and exceeds our expectations!
It has been truly a pleasure doing business with you, especially over a
long distance.
The next time we visit Germany, we will be sure to look you up and visit
your place of business.
With warm regards,
Coupeville, Washington

Dear Peter,

I just wanted you to know that I picked up my poppy lamp shade on Saturday from FedEx and that it was in perfect condition.  The wooden box and packing material were intact and not one hint of damage.

I am thrilled with the lamp.  It is absolutely beautiful.  I am very impressed with the the quality of your craftsmanship.  It is just as you described.  And the quality of the glass--the richness of the variegated colors, the textures, the air bubbles within the blue glass--it's a joy to look at and to touch.  The veins of the leaves around the edges are also so beautiful.  The subtle verdigris  of the metal is tastefully done.  I've not seen such glass on any of the lamps in stores here in New York.  Actually, I should qualify that.  I have not seen NEW lamps such as yours here in NY, but I have seen antique ones at the Metropoitan Museum and select antique stores.  Beautiful lighting makes all the difference in the world in setting one's mood.  And your lamp casts a beautiful glow.  It's a pleasure to come home to.

Thank you,

Dear Peter

The lamp arrived yesterday. I must admit that I was slightly nervous, not
having had the opportunity to see it before buying. However, it exceeded my
expectations by a long way. It is very impressive, very beautifully and
carefully made, and with good quality materials. It was a present for my
wife for our 8th wedding anniversary, which is symbolised by bronze (which
is why I was keen to know what the lamp base was made of!). She has always
liked Tiffany lamps and is very happy indeed with the present.

I will definitely keep you in mind for some of the other lamps I had my eye

Thanks again.

Kind regards

Hi friends,
I hope you are well.
I came back this morning to my work and discovered the Poppy on your
web-site. What a colourful lamp and how wonderful it seems !...
The flowers are fantastic (the mixing between the pink/red and orange is
fabulous) and I am very impatient to have it in front of my eyes.
We have an appointment on Sunday 20th.
We plan to go to Brussels on Saturday, then the next day to Essen.
We would like to meet you not too late in the afternoon because we have a
long way back and we have to work the next morning...
Cool the glasses, we'll bring the Champagne...
I'll give you also the French plugs I bought for you.

We can't wait to have the pleasure to meet you again.
Have a nice day.

Dear Peter:
I thought you would enjoy this photograph of your spider lamp. One of my cats --rosie--(1 of 2) has decided this lamp is an ideal area for sleep and an excellent source of heat. She is 22 years old, I got her in 1980 and at the rate she is going will outlive me.
Speak to you soon regarding future work
Is the 10" Azalea pictured on your site still available, if so what is the price.

Dear Peter and Gudrun,

The other parts of the lamp came today and my neighbor was kind enough to
sign for it. The U.S. Customs had to get their share so the government
carged me &35.00 to get it but that wasn't so bad; they get most of our
money anyway. And my neighbor paid the postman and I paid her.

It took me and Catherine about an hour to unpack and clean up. Gudrun, you
really know how to pack a lamp and shade; everything was perfect.

I have the lamp togather now and it is everything and more than I expected.
You two have done a beautiful piece of art. Thank you so much. L.C. Tiffany
couldn't have done any better.

I had a physician once that I was doing an anterior bridge for and when he
saw the finished work he said the next dentist he went to, he was going to
ask him if he was an artist also.

All of our children and grandchildren are gone now and we are both pretty
well "worn out" tired. Just like any grandmother, Catherine always hates to
see them leave but it takes us both about 3 days to recoperate.

If you have any  comments to make just send me an email.After I get the
wiring changed I'll take a picture of the two lamps and send them to you.
You have a great time in Florida.

Thank you again. Your friend, Bob MXXXXXXXXXX

Dear Peter and Gudrun,
Thank you for your hospitality.
Your lamp has the best place in our sitting-room and I'll send you photos
as soon as I have.
Ghislaine was extremely pleased about it and gives you all hercongratulations.
Her favorite face is the late summer time because of itsfantastic colours, but she
acknowledges that the other face is also interesting...
You have definitively won our satisfaction and I can tell other customers
how nice your work is.
The next time I'll go to the shop, I'll buy for you some French plug and
send it to you.
Best greetings.
Philippe & Ghislaine.

I got home at midnight and it was too late to use the electric drill.  But
we did open the box with the shade this morning at 8am (the neighbors must
hate us - but we figured they should be up, getting ready for work anyway!)
Of course, we didn't have time to open the box with the stem - so we
couldn't see the shade in all its glory - however, even just holding it up
to the light, it is amazing.  All your hard work .... all the love and
attention.  We love it.  Thank you so much.  I promise to write when we get
to assemble the lamp this weekend.

I hope we can continue corresponding in the future - I would like to hear
about your trip to Orlando and England!

Date: Baghdad, March 11 th, 2002 Dear Dr. Grotepass,

I most certainly hope that you are not wasting your time with pulling of, or drilling around in, unappetizing teeth in ill-maintained mouths, in a fruitless attempt to stop or delay processes that will sooner or later lead to, and suffer, the inevitable destiny of being burned or buried!

How much more rewarding is it to create timeless pieces of beauty that can be enjoyed by generations of enlightened - in the true sense of the word - people, even people who's time of ownership of naturally grown teeth has long been forgotten and who are now enjoying the piece of mind and freedom of fear for the consequences of paradentosis and retarding gums that only "thirds" can grant?

Should, therefore, your motto not be "solder I must, drilling I may" ? As otherwise we might run into the precarlous and for all parties concerned unhappy situation' that I with my scratching up of scarce dollars might beat you to the finish which for you is the completion of the lamp!

So, how are we getting along? Interested to hear progress report. Will stay three more days in this birthplace of civilization but can always be reached by email here or in Germany, not in US office next few weeks.

With kindest regard,

Holger E. xxxxxxxx

Peter-  Just a quick note to see how you are doing.

I spoke with that prospective customer a couple weeks
ago by phone.  I believe he was going to order a lamp
from you.  Did he?  You should know that US citizens
pay a customs duty.  For us it was $180 payable to the
UPS deliverer by check.  It probably is a percentage
of the value of the shipped item.

I hope you enjoyed your vacation in the states.
Florida is a place I hope to visit one day.  It is
filled with retired people from New York and New
Jersey, so I should feel at home there.

We continue to enjoy our fruit lamp.  We get the
nicest compliments from people who see it for the
first time.  Additionally, my daughter has taken great
interest in it.  I know it will stay in my family for
a long time!   Thanks again for the work of art you

Best regards,

Dear Dr. Grotepass

Fran and I unpacked the lamp the other evening and it was even more beautiful than we expected.  Frankly it was the most beautiful lamp we have ever seen!  It was a pleasure doing business with you (and we were even really impressed with the shipping container you made).

By any chance do you have or can you make a hanging lamp similiar in size and shape of the grapevine lamp where the focused color is a cherry red?  If so, we would be interested in buying one. Please let us know.

Thanks again.  You are a creative genus.
