I'm not sure Chris Lucas is still with Alum Bay, I think he might be on his own or running another Studio now.
I think Glas Vasen's piece is looking more and more like both his work and the marks are looking more as if they might read C.Lucas.
I know somebody who has a beautiful bowl by him - which had a disaster when it had been sitting in direct sunshine - the iridescent stuff on both sides of the glass reflected heat backwards and forwards inside the glass and it exploded.... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
I'll get him to have a look at this thread. :thup:

It's a very, very scarce piece, made by Michael Harris, Greg.
It's utterly fabulous, one of my very best pieces - and it's really, really cuddly - you can hold it in your arms like a baby - but it's better behaved. :sun:
Ron Wheeler recently found and sold a signed one.

(he using an image of it as his collector's club membership card - see here:-

http://www.artiusglass.co.uk/id32.html

Peter Elliot had one which he sold perhaps a couple of years ago - it was at the same Fair as Ron sold his first signed Crizzle Stone. Over the years I have been told of two others - one slightly smaller but signed, and there's mine. So only 5 are known. And two of those are hearsay!

It's from very early on at Mdina - it's in "plain" amethyst glass, with no silver salts included.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks sue, it's a stunning piece, when I first saw it I thought there can't have been many of those produced! I would certainly cradle it if it was mine.

I've got another piece that's not mdina but should be right up your street. I'll email you a few pics if you like as in high res.

Rosie the group of IOW are beautiful  :sun:  I was going to say I particularly love the hedgehogs but are they anteaters :-[ sorry but I wasn't sure - whatever I really like them  :sun:
Craig, your coffee table display is stunning!  Love the new vase.  I have this large dolphin edited to read 'fish' after Rosie's post below, of course it is a fish :thud:  ;D (11" long), that has the most amazing uranium glow even in daylight.  I guess it could be the same maker perhaps?
