Unfortunately we weren't allowed to handle it, otherwise I might have run off with it. (They'd never have found me in the maze of corridors; half the time I couldn't find me!)

And there's more....

I was allowed to take photographs at the Scottish Glass Society Exhibition when it was held in the Strathearn Gallery in Crieff. (fabulous gallery - very supportive of Glass Art and Art Glass. It's family run - and Edith Maguire, the lovely lady in charge, is a former pupil of Helen Munro Turner's).

Here are Mike's stunning bits from the exhibition.

Cheers, Sue (M)

  Mike   has just come back  from the USA, after doing a Master glass with Pino
  Signoretto,  the week before Pino arrived he spent  time learning how to do  Venetian goblets with Michael Schunke.  But the pictures you have seen  here are early  work  from  5 years ago I would expect.
So I can not wait to see  how his next goblets will  turn out.
