Dear Mike
Its one of a series no more then 4 pieces in that colour, one was engraved by Madeleine Dingle for Don Knight sadly no longer with us. 
Its nice to see the old work turning up, I did wonder if any survived

Thank you.

Barry

Thanks Barry, ever so much, for posting a pic. of the M D vase ! So it was the clear sections she engraved . It looks really beautiful !

I found a link to a photo of 'The Price of Oil' so I thought I would post it here for reference as it was mentioned above.

Barry was 'Acid Rain' , Peter Dreiser, also one of your vases, it's on page 93 of Techniques of Glass Engraving (2nd edn.) Dreiser & Matcham ?

Sue , I couldn't agree more , it's gorgeous ! 

Cheers, Mike.

That photo doesn't do "The Price of Oil" much justice... it looks far better "straight on" than from an angle above, but you're right, Mike  :) we should have an image of it here.

I do find myself wondering if the photographer wanted to disguise the highly significant message of this work - that the fish are all suffocating and dying...

Can't find it! But I did find "Drowning of the Innocents".

Definitely not. It's an outstanding piece. I should have bought it when I had the chance in the eighties!

Aaah, the ones that got away, Adam!  :'(
However, pieces of  such importance as these belong in museums, not private collections.

Sadly I've been unable to locate a pic. of 'Acid Rain' on the internet . There's a stunning photo of it in Dreiser's book (mentioned above) . It's another national treasure !

I'd be really interested to find out a bit about how the engraver collaberates with the glassmaker to produce such amazing final works.

The glass itself is so important - it must merge with, suggest and illustrate the design before it is finally put on.
I know that Allister Malcolm makes "blanks" for Jonathan Harris, and that Jane Charles makes "blanks" for Julia Linstead.

I find myself looking more and more at the work in the blank, behind the surface work these days.
Cheers, Sue (M)
