Wheaton Village Marble Weekend 2005 - Ro Purser Demo

Ro Purser demonstrated how he makes the murrini for his Murrini Spheres and Noble Effort (years ago with Richard Marquis). On Friday night, Ro made a frog murrini cane, which we all then got a little piece of the next day. Any future murrini spheres with a frog in them have some roots at Wheaton Village Marble Weekend 2005!
