Ooops!  Just one more I forgot!  ::) These aren't mine, their my DH's - yes, I've converted him to collecting glass, too (as in, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"  :24: )  It's in the kitchen, appropriately enough, as it's a collection of Anne Arlidge's 'Lost vegetable' glass castings!  ;D

thanks for your comments on our bathroom  :sun:  I love it too, couldn't stay in it too long or live with that colour in a living area, but as a bathroom it works brilliantly (been like that for 13 years so not going to change any time soon). Leni I absolutely love those pieces and the technique of her work!

Michelle,  don't fret over the Langham swan, unless it is ever the large white 'cob' style one (they only made a few of those) I am not so keen on the 'flouncy' type they make. But thank you for thinking of me. :kissy:
m, the ducks are Leerdam, and are part of my collection....I have several of these, the ducklings and ellies, and also the sausage dogs.  I am still looking for an affordable deer, owl and fish.....even though I don't 'do' fish!
I love your veggies m, so much more interesting than the coloured pieces you often see. And of course the kitchen is the perfect place for them to be displayed.
Today I have to clear the kitchen windowsills of all glass because we are having new blinds fitted and they wont leave room for glass displays now! :cry: :cry: They will have to be squashed into the cupboard with the Leerdam ducks! :thud:
Rosie.

Yes, Greg, the amethyst club has been spotted and counted.
I've been considering asking a moderator to amend my posting to take this into account. There are now 6 known, (2 hearsay) 4 signed (one of the hearsay ones included in that). I think the information would be better in the original posting, because it could get misquoted if folk don't read this far on...... :fwr: pretty please, dear moderators, when you have time?
Cheers, Sue (M)

 :thup: at last I've got a free moment.

The big blue/purple/metal vase on the window ledge  is by Renate Korinek. I believe she's Austrian.

The Blowzone piece is nine layers of opaque glass with some of the facets cut through to the inner colour.  It took four goes before Kevin Barry at The Glasshouse in Dudley was brave enough to finish it, the three other engravers not willing to continue. At least that's what he told me.

 :ooh: Incidently I'm watching 'the' bottle on ebay with interest....you'r so lucky to own one  :mrgreen: cheers steph.

Well I finally got going and here are some photos of my "real" display cabinet - the others are too full to get a useful photo of.  This one is about to become a "Holmegaard" cabinet because I try to change it every few months.  After that Kosta Boda or Orrefors - haven't decided yet.

Photo #1 - On top of the cabinet - Vases mainly - 2 Scandinavian, 2 NZ, 1 Australian, 1 Scottish, 1 unknown, 1 pottery.  Three paperweights - 2NZ & my Studio Ahus "Fire".

Photo #2 - Top Shelf - Mainly Pwts - from all over.  the blue vases are from USA.  The latticino is the firts bit I ever bought.  10/11 countries represented.

Photo #3 - Middle Shelf - Australian Art Glass - Only one I am not certain about id the small wavy irridescent vase

Photo #4 - Bottom Shelf - Australian Art Glass
