    Glad you liked the pics, folks! Guess I should mention that the 3 no-namers that many of you have admired ... are made out of clay. They're hand made using some kind of clay that doesn't need firing. The woman who makes these does excellant work, doesn't she? She had a number of very nicely rendered pieces on her show table. Her prices weren't cheap, but can't argue with the craftsmanship. She'll even try to create a piece mimicing you're favorite flower though I hav no idea how long such a piece would take to create. Some sadistic bugger gave her a Den spectabile flower to duplicate LOL

    Sorry, Larry, but I knew you were planning on hitting the show on Sunday. I wasn't sure when I was going as I was waiting on a friend's father who wanted me to accompany him and advise him on picking some orchids out.

    And yes, weak-willed wimp that I am, I bought more orchids than I had planned on. Sigh ... the shame! I take pics and show them in a separate post.

    haha...I just read now that you said that they were made of clay. So they are fake. I got excited there.
    The stunning vanda is clay too then, that one had to be complex to make
