I have a glass blog where I describe and discuss pieces of New Zealand studio glass.  I am always willing to try to help with identification.

Do check it out

Stuart, thank you, and welcome to the board.

We have very little reference material on NZ glass (other than Angela Bowey's book) so your blog will be a very useful and interesting resource. I'm having a browse through and there's some lovely glass shown. :thup:

I contributed a short historical section to the wonderful book published last year by the NZ Society of Artists in Glass New Zealand Glass Art.  It also has essays by Grace Cochrane and technical whizz John Croucher, as well as a photographic survey of (most of) the best of current New Zealand glass practice.

As I noted, I am always happy to try to help out with questions about NZ glass.

Anne:
Could you add an entry for that book into our Glass Books forum please? It's not one I've come across before.

Anne:
Stuart has a new entry in his NZ Glass blog about former glassmaker-turned-actor, Greg Smith, and an earlier one about Avalon Glass, of which Greg Smith was a co-founder. http://newzealandglass.blogspot.co.uk/

Other articles in Stuart's fascinating blog cover John Leggott, Garry Nash (Sunbeam Glass studio), Kathy Shaw-Urlich, Evelyn Dunstan and much more.
