Keith Murray?? More bubbles...
« on: January 24, 2010, 06:36:33 AM »
Hi. Another piece of bubble glass, 10cm high, 19cm diameter. Probably flogging a dead horse here but could it be Murray?

Is there anything at all on the base?  One would expect it to have an etched or stamped signature if it were a piece of KM.

Does your bowl have a polished pontil and/or any etched marks?

Here is a (similar) bowl by Erik Hoglund but a little larger http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,26325.0.html

Hi. It has a polished pontil mark and unfortunately no etched marks that I can see. I thought it was worth a punt at it was relatively cheap and appears to be a quality piece. I admit that the Hoglund bowl is a very similar shape... Hard to know what to believe re Murrays work, some books say all his work is signed others not. I know his stuff was sold here in NZ. Does anyone know if Murrays pattern book is online or been published anywhere? Cheers
