Press Makers's Comment: I met Deborah Horrell back in our college days--the 1970s and '80s. She taught college back east and moved back to the West coast. After she set up her studio for glass art she wanted to get back to etching. So she ordered a Mini Halfwood press in December of 2008 and took delivery three weeks later.
