Allan Scott 's paperweights

Hi Allan,

To preserve his modesty,  :wink: I'll post a couple of samples of Adam's work - the first Adam Aaronson piece I owned - a perfume bottle:  http://tinypic.com/a3jcl1.jpg

And my precious 'Estuary Dawn' vase, from his 'Landscapes' range, which we saw him make and which he kindly inscribed 'made at the inagural meeting of the London Glassaholics'  :D http://tinypic.com/a3j97t.jpg

However, Adam has also already ventured into paperweight making!  Here's one of his I bought at the National Glass Collectors' Fair this year: http://tinypic.com/a3ja1g.jpg

Can't wait to see him try lampwork!   :shock:  :D

The perfume bottle is sort of large paperweight size and the paperweight is .... er ... sort of large paperweight size!   :roll:  :lol:

Adam's Landscapes come in all sizes!  Mine's a whopping 8" high and 5" diameter and *heavy*!  But it's not as big as some of the ones he makes  :shock:  

Here's a pic of the display of Landscapes he took to the National, including some *really* big ones!   http://tinypic.com/a407x0.jpg

Some of the "earthy" ones have a kind of Hans Coper feel to them.....impressive display particularly when shown together like this.

well me and my wife Julie were honored on Sunday afternoon, on the Friday Allan Scott asked me and Julie up to the caithness glass factory for a guided tour, so after the glass conference finished we meet up with Allan and his wife Evonne and headed to caithness, Allan showed me his little work office what a mess lol no it wasn't that bad, he showed me some of his weight's he made yrs ago, then he showed me how to make a lampworked flower, what skill this man has it took him 5 min's to make the flower in the photo and it took me about 15 min's to make mine, i was pleased for my 1st attempt you can tell who's was who's and then Allan showed us around the factory  was very interesting and then went for a brew at his house and to look at his private paperweight collection i could of walked out of there with my pocket's full but Allan would of noticed, both of us had a great afternoon and many thanks to Allan and Evonne for there hospitality

thanks from Ray & Julie

RAY!  :shock: (http://www.smileys.ws/sm/sad/00000040.gif)

Do you *know* how envious I am?  :cry:

You lucky, lucky pair!  How I wish I could have been there!   :(

And you got to do some lampwork, too!  :shock:

Seriously, I'm very impressed!  Looks like a fantastic attempt.  Well done!  :D

Hans Coper? Were you trying to make my day? week? month? year? :!: That is one of the most generous compliments anybody could wish for. Thank you, Gareth. :D

Hi,
   I have to say Ray's effort at lampwork was really good, ( it was actually the coaching from the sidelines by his wife Julie that made it so good, LOL).It was also very good of you,Ray,to say my room was'nt that messy,( It really is ).Seriously, it was a great pleasure to meet everyone at the convention and hopefully we will all meet again. :D
