I received your piece, "Winter Solitude," recently as a "retirement" gift. How appropriate! We collect pieces from Europe, Japan and China, and have placed yours in a important place in our home with light shining down upon it. Thank you for your great talent and artistry.

Ray is my favorite glass art artist. He is a very special person. I owned about 15 pieces and have to admit his work has become an addiction. God Bless you Ray and thank you for the many memories I will have of you and many years of enjoyment looking at your creations. Marc Forderhase 

I have one of Ray's winter solitude bowls and use them for special awards for Board members in a non-profit organization I lead. They are all special.

I just noticed your web site and recognized your name as I browsed for art glass. Frequently I glance up at a lighted shelf in my kitchen displaying wonderfull champagne flutes etched with frosted branching trees or flowing lines with floating bubbles. Happy glasses that are used often with friends who must rub them to enjoy their texture as conversations and drinks flow. Just re-read the signature on the stem base... RLapsys "87" ...I purchased them from the New Morning Gallery in Asheville NC when I lived there years ago. Wow! Think I'll drink a toast to your artistry right now and enjoy the treasured glasses even more.
