They are lovely Robert, (especially the Wedgwood squirrel, I'm nuts about squirrels!). I like the use of the long window as a light source.....I can just hear Anik saying....'Don't slam the door!!'

I like textured glass as well, M, especially Scandinavian glass. Yours are very restrained and carefully placed....I wish I had that knack. :mrgreen:

I see your new fishie, flying-free - and I see some lovely Benny's - and some fabby Bitossi..... ohhhh, I'm going to have to show you somethings..... sorry about the poor quality of pics - they were taken sort of as the camera was deciding it was going to refuse to operate in any mode other than micro-micro (flower+s setting)
Cheers, Sue (M)

I love the diversity in everyone's collection, such a wide range of varying glass some of which I have never seen down under.
I'll be looking a lot harder now!
Cheers,
Meegs

Very nice... don't have any Caithness myself - I just love these nicely structured thickwalled pieces from that time period. Thanks for the extra pic!

The lampwork mushrooms are the work of the amazing Mr Ed Iglehart, Michelle.
He's still working - at all sorts of interesting things! I've got some oil lamps, some beautiful little long necked pot vases, and a couple of wall-fitted "Wizard cone" lamps.

Robert, I can't get to car boots - I go to some fairs - not as many as I used to - in fact, just one a year, if I'm lucky and Christine invites me to stay.
I used to buy a lot on ebay, but not any more, I scour the local charity shops and if i'm taken out for an afternoon, I look at other charity shops.
I go to galleries which sell Art Glass and I buy from contemporary makers. Or rather, I did when I could afford to collect.
I buy very little now. I had allocated some of an inheritance to put towards collecting, spent it quite rapidly, had tons of fun with it, accumulated a lot, then had to stop.
I was just lucky, really, having the means to collect when I did.
Cheers, Sue (M)
