You might like to know that Michael Rayner and Timothy Harris, representing his father Michael, opened Isle of Wight Glass Museum. I have attached a picture. Michael is on the right. More information is also here: I remember his talk at the museum opening event vividly.

Michael Rayner has generously loaned his personal archive of his early and experimental pieces made at the Totland Bay studio to the museum, consisting of about 2 dozen pieces.

Michael Rayner has not made glass for many years. He now makes models for railway enthusiasts.
