    I'd hit up Austin Flameworks in Austin, Texas. I've used them for all my repairs(from super headys to prodo stuff) and they've done a fantastic job. I've used a couple of other local artists for repairs and non have came close to Kevin Ivys work at Flameworks.
    I'd give them a call and see if they are able to accept repairs via mail. If not i'd be more than happy to middle man the transaction for you(mail the glass to me, and i'll take em over to flameworks and send em back to ya)
    Shoot me a pm if interested.

    Look for someone that has lathe skills to do these repairs, most of the tubes are going to have to be mounted on a lathe to be repaired; if you want them to be clean. Sorry for your loss's

    I also have one of the leisure glass venitian mini's that broke very cleanly on the neck, needs to be fixed because i dont think they are doing too many more of the venetians, at least as minis.
