There were about a dozen shapes in each of the ranges, the shetland shoreline was made in an aquamarine blue, sargasso green and an orange. There were four collections, the others were "feathered", "irridised" and "the artists pallet".
My favorite was the shetland shoreline!

As an aside, the logo was designed by Martin Evans who has a studio on the Isle of Wight; www.gloryartglass.com

Scotland's Glass would love to add this piece of history of course!!!

If someone can put words and images together it would be greatly appreciated.

If someone puts together words in a coherent order, someone else  :angel: would be pleased to edit them, so don't let worries about writing standards and spilling put you off.
