I believe it to be Stuart Strathearn.
 
Maybe best wait for official confirmation from somebody who knows more than I do about this sort of thing, though!

I have seen a few items with this surface decoration recently in different shapes, I had wondered if they were modern and mass produced.

I would say either modern/mass produced or Strathearn.  So that's either really bad or really great!

And I've asked somebody who knows a lot more than I do about this, who has also confirmed the id.
I personally suspect an Isle of Wight Studio Glass "inspiration" behind this design..... and I'm not alone.
