Not to mention the power bills in our new carbon tax world!

Imagine the same thing done with a large glass window (shop size) with the wall Easterly facing so you get the relatively cool morning sun.  Or perhaps a Southerly/Northerly facing wall where the sun doesn't shine onto the glass.  Sorry about those who live where the sun rarely shines - but only two years ago we had a 46.5°C day or in the old scale 115.5°F - so you can imagine with heat that intense in the Sun you really might set fire to the shelves.  And that I might point out is in Melbourne - on the coast - not inland.

All that said what a beautiful result.

It does show off the glass well - but it looks like a shop display.
I couldn't have anything so cold and clinical in my home.

It would be good if museums would display glass like this!

(I'm afraid I was much more interested in the Vladimir Klein at the top of the page - I adore Vladimir Klein's work  :love:

I guess it all depends on the individual...  I don't see it as cold and clinical, but clean, non-chaotic, and perfectly pleasing to my senses.   :)

We're very different on this matter, aren't we? :)
Are you absolutely sure your fabulous Weidmann candleholders aren't just a little too..... disorganised for you?  ;)
I could give them a "comfy, lived-in" home, any day!  :sun:

Lol... then again, a wee bit of disorganisation won't kill me.  My Wiedmann candleholders are fabulous. ;D

Well it being the end of a forgettable year for me I thought I should celebrate it with a Scottish Hogmanay disoplay of most of my Scottish collection.  For a McKenzie whose male ancestors came from beside Eilean Donan Castle it seemed appropriate.  Happy Old & New Year to everyone.  I intend to have a better one this year.

Ross,  that is a lovely selection of Scottish glass.....I have yet to find a Chris Dodds Mushroom,  but I have lots of his animals (as if you didn't know!)....perhaps I should get them all together one day and take a picture....Selkirk, Chris Dodds and Caithness are my favourites.
Did I tell you BTW that I had bought anothe Alan Fox glass bird......here in UK!!  Hooray, reasonable postage!  When I geth all the Christmas stuff put away,  I will take a picture of it and email it to you.....unless everyone wants to see it!!

Hi Ross, great selection!

 I am only Scot "connected"  by marriage (does that still count when one is widowed I wonder?) but I feel the urge to get out the Caithness for New Year coming over me - I'll just have to brave the shed and the redbacks to get to it all!

What is the bowl on the top right top of cabinet? You have just said Caithness but it is not one I am familiar with?

And happy and healthy New Year to you and yours.

regards
