Price increases and a cool video at the factory
hope everyone had an awesome week!
First of all, the prices on esington.com will increase on Monday (the 9th) and I'll be removing the MINI Trio add-on option. As I posted before, we will be moving towards the retail price as we get to the end of production. If you have any friends or family that want to get in at the lower price, now's the time :)
I also wanted to give you a quick update on where we stand with production. So far, we are still on schedule:
- February 12th: first batch production completed
- February 17th: first batch arrives here, and we begin boxing and shipping
- February 18th: 2nd batch begins production
- February 21st: first batch shipment complete
Right now, the glass blowers are producing about 200 units per day. I wanted to share the production video of how they seal off the ends. What amazed me was how the glass blowers handle the glass with their bare hands (though they are using arm and eye protection) since they need the subtle feedback that they wouldn't get with gloves on.
Such skill! If you've ever tried to blow glass, you know how difficult this move is. Spinning molten glass with bare hands is not something you see every day :)
Soon, you'll have one of these works of art in your own hands. I can't wait to get them out to you all and begin to hear your stories of success!
