Hi Geoff, I am not sure that Dartington Studio is the right description, in the other thread Bryn said his had a paper label "Innovate, the art of glass" and it was bought in a "Dartington outlet shop". Maybe I am just confusing myself.
As to Dartington Glass itself, I think Frank Thrower is somewhat underestimated as a designer. He may not have designed anything that revolutionary but he was prolific and Dartington Glass produced a lot of both practical and decorative glass.
I now regret selling a face vase (FT52) in kingfisher that I found, although often thought of as quite ugly (reminds me of Bart Simpson) it does have character. Here is a photo for anyone who has not had the misfortune/good fortune to see one.
