Hi Adam,
            I asked Harry McKay about the abstract weights you posted and he confirmed that John makes these kind of weights.He told me they used to make them originally at the Strathearn works,(a bit before my time, :D ,just).They used to call them "sea urchins"apparently.

P.s. Thanks Ray, for helping out with the brochure images.

Hello everybody,

it seems, Leni is righ with her opinion, that my lampwork pieces are from John Deacons studio, but not all made by his hands.
I will ask my friend who gave them to me as a present.

The Butterlfy and the Dragonfly should be made by John himself and I won´t sell them. They are smaller and more detailed.

The old brochure is fantastic, I love the "J" Paperweight very much,
here are some pictures of my favourite "J" Paperweight, which you can also see in the brochure:

Best wishes

Thanks Allan

Great bit of information about my abstract weights, 'Sea Urchins' I have never been able to truly confirm these are J Deacons. I see them in a whole different light now and can see why they were given this name, I would love to take a picture of them in a seaside rock pool, I bet they would look amazing!
