Sooo, we received the first glass samples last week.
Obviously we were eagerly awaiting their arrival, and when the package came in, i actually shot so many photographs of Thomas opening it, that i could make a stop-motion film.
Which i did, just to illustrate how excited we were:
However... Obviously the samples weren't perfect yet.
I guess we were both so exhilirated about the package in the mail, we kind of forgot these are only the first samples and were bound to have a few things wrong with them.
Truth be told, we did feel kind of deflated when the glass reservoirs turned out to be similar to the prototypes we made, but not yet exactly the same. And not completely perfect yet.
Since then Thomas made a detailed list of the things that need to be changed and the manufacturer is making new samples as we speak. This time he uses a mold to help with the shape, and since we've also been a bit more specific about what we're looking for, we have high hopes for this batch.
Again: we'll keep you posted!
