Dear Jim Murphy,=20

Pretty fundamental. The next questions concern the physical qualities =
which define "Best Fusion Buttons".

In other words, what discriminates a good fusion button from one which =
is of lesser value? Can this be described in simple universal referents? =
What would you look for? Without thinking about the Design of a Specific =
Glaze, what are the important things? What is necessary when the =
inessential is shaved away?

Last week I drafted out a couple of thousand words about the qualities =
of a glaze and how they might be defined. That sits as a long hand text =
and will stay that way for the time being.

Great way to put your concerns by the way.

Best regards,
