It has recently come to my attention that there is a lot more to the RB Studio range than just the specific Harris' design.

This vase has a label, and isn't a Harris design, as far as I know.

There is another surface textured style, I believe it's called "Terrazzo". I have tracked this down as a friend has a piece, then I saw a similar design of vase on ebay, boxed and labelled - with the pattern name on the box. I do have pics, but they're not mine to show. sorry.

I've seen quite a few of these in vase and bowl form but not to keen on them, I suppose I'll have to get one as part of the collection ::)

nice pieces Keith - and thanks to Sue for some information about which I knew rather little.     I have a personal mental description of these Harris pieces - and in my mind (perhaps wrongly) think of their surface decoration as looking rather like a sort of 'vermiculite' patterning.   I have pieces from the 'Studio' range in white, red, and that rather iridescent black  -  as far as I know I'm certainly missing the blue ish sort of violet they did.     And of course, each colour was produced in several different shapes.

Is that labelled or marked in any way?
It looks awfully like brand-new Makora to me!

I had a turquoise iridescent Royal Brierley Studio bowl in exactly that shape - I slightly regret selling it as it's a very contemporary shape compared to most of their iridescent range.

The colour is a little washed out by the flash,it is a bit darker and signed 'Royal Brierley Studio'
