CONTEMPORARY GLASS SCULPTURE - ARTIST ?
« on: September 16, 2011, 09:08:00 PM »
THANKS FOR ANY HELP IDENTIFYING THE ARTIST - IT'S AN IMPRESSIVE PIECE IS 8" TALL X 5" AT WIDEST AND WEIGHS 1.76KGS - IT IS SIGNED ON BASE BUT AFTER MUCH SEARCHING HAVE COME UP WITH A BLANK !!
THE SIGNATURE LOOKS LIKE "MIKAL ROGIER - TAHAID BAY" .. ????? IT'S A LOVELY PIECE AND VERY TACTILE

THERE WAS A BUILD UP OF MANY YEARS DUST WHEN I PURCHASE IT SO GUESSING ALTHOUGH CONTEMPORARY HAS SOME AGE.

???????

Just taking guesses here.

first looks like Micheal (or could be Michael)

Next name looks like ???  Redbey, Redby, Playford, Playfred.......???

Could the last word be "Hungary" -- as I am just guessing here.  Can we get a few more shots of the signature at some closer angles, or just some variations of it.

Thanks -- all Guesses here

This looks like a good case for the Talcum powder trick.  I think it reads Michael Page  then  Tolland  .

If you look at http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=35231.new;topicseen#new you will see a couple of postings where I tried to help a user get a better photo of the signature.  The problem always with a fornt on shot is that the background colours and pattern tends to confuse the eyes.  Best to try to eliminate as much of it as you can.  TThe phot from a shallow angle ought to work better as well.  Good Luck.

No idea about the signature but the glass was made at Alum Bay.

The signature probably reads as "Michael Rayner": http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,13170.msg86389.html#msg86389

Max has/had a 1977 vase signed Michael Rayner, Totland Bay - which deciphers the rest of the signature.

Totland Bay was presumably the name used before the move to the premises in Alum Bay, looks to be about a mile down the road....
