I think they're ~ 2005 myself.
I always wonder where the time has gone since I was at that exhibition - or any of them - they're always so fresh in my head! Glass I remember - dates, faces, names, conversations... all vanish, but glass sticks!
That goblet has a lizard wound around it's knop, it's wonderful.

And you should have seen the tartan tumbler he had with him,  :thud: recently made, at the conference!
(somebody else had nabbed it before I knew of it's existance!)

I loved Mike's tools - a bone handled table-knife, and a steel chopping-board knife.
...I use those sorts of tools in the garden, while my OH tends to use old ice-picks... (he's a rock-climber).
And I loved his statement about there being no "right" ways to do things in working glass - if it works for you, it's the right way for you!

If it is one I think you like ,
I agree  it is a nice piece , in  fact  it is part of my own collection.
We do keep  one or two piece  so we can log Mikes progress and change of styles over the  years,
One day  may be an exhibition  which will track  his career.

That's a really, really good idea, Sue!   :thup:
(and an excuse for you to keep all the best bits for yourself   :sm:  )

Studio Art Glass is a fairly recent movement in art, tracking its history isn't actually that easy - notes weren't taken at the time - it was all exciting and experimental and moving forward, folk were too busy doing it to even think about it being part of art history.

It is part of art history and it is important.

Cheers, Sue (M)
