I am a loss as to what to do with trying to get myself registered with them. I have emailed my details about 6 different times now over about a years time and still nothing. Should I just keep trying every few weeks!  Sad

When I had not heard, I emailed her and then it happened very quickly.

I had an email saying that that they'd received my application and that she would be passing it on to the appropriate person, about 6months ago so I sent a reply to that recently earlier this month I think.  Still nothing, its a shame because I do think that non glassy people find it quite important - I feel unworthy  Cry

You can still call yourself a SRA but just not show the logo.

I bet if you showed the "logo" illegally,  Roll Eyes they would be on your tail quicker than a rat up a drainpipe.  Grin

Pretty poor that you have to badger them half to death for this, or is that me being picky?

If it's that hard to be noticed and feel "worthy" then count me out.  I'm pretty confident without a logo on any page in the future with my work on it, and so should everyone else.

This might be a bit controversial, but I think it's a load of old tosh. Anyone who submits a couple of pictures of their beads and show they've got a torch gets a number. If they've got the right surname, that is, and are on the right list. If not, you can wait for years. The words "We do not judge your style or quality levels, however" just go to say how little it means.

For those that need a title, we're all self-representing artists, regardless of a logo or number, and certainly don't need some sort of validation from an overseas scheme to hold our heads up and say we make things that we're proud of, and that are worth buying.

Okaaaay!!   Smiley
See I hadn't really thought about it like that. I thought when I started torching it would be something worth having, mostly I guess because a lot of lampworkers I admire have the logo and it's been made a big thing of in some ways,  people being happy getting it, the blurbs about being a self representing artist etc, though when I think about it , probably more so in the US than here.  Now listening to what you're saying, thinking about the fact it doesn't actually do jack, and  that I'm pretty fed up contacting them, it's giving me a whole new way of looking at it!
