The cat that got the cream - Crizzle Stone - Harris
« on: April 12, 2009, 05:30:29 PM »
Ok, now I really am showing off, today I feel like the cat that got a massive dollop of cream and then some.

Bought this crizzle stone today, made by Jonathan Harris at IOW (signed and dated). Height 18cm, width 19cm.

It is stunning....

Very nice,
I saw he was making some.
I presume you got it from IOW direct, not of a car boot  !!  :thup:

Cheers

Thanks Andy, got it at a flea market, bought from a Gent who has had it since it was made a couple of years ago. My good luck, early birds and worms....

Except the one Andy found is a Timothy Harris experimental and Jonathan hasn't worked at IOW since 1999

Ooops, red faced am I. It is signed Timothy not Jonathan, having a closer look with a magnifying glass I can see the elaborate T is not a J and the last letter is Y. I should not have posted in haste on an empty stomach!

I am not certain that it is the same one pictured and sold on IOW's website, I was told that 5 were signed and numbered and I would speculate that there may have been one or more trial pieces too.

Thanks John,
i expect IOW Glass would tell you, or maybe ron Wheeler at  http://www.artiusglass.co.uk/
how many were made, and any other info you wanted.

Good hunting,
Andy

Thank you Andy, I think I may have used up my luck for a few weeks or months but I will not let that stop me from looking.

John.
