If this is the third to appear in a short amount of time I wouldn't think it is a student piece...

Why not?

In all honesty, I was thinking the same...  what are the chances of three+ similar sloppy innards student pieces appearing in three different countries?   :usd:

Well, at least my piece hasn't come via ebay, but from the Viennese fleamarket as usual...
Judging from the amounts of dirt and mouse droppings, it has spent some time in an attic or cellar.

But Frank may still be right with his student's piece assumption. (I hope he is wrong :), because it would be quite impossible to find out more about these objects then)

Just to be clear, Student's can produce high quality, they can also make a LOT of pieces... perhaps for an installation. With all the glass schools around that is a lot of glass floating around the world. Where a student would have the greatest difficulty is in repeatability... that takes years of practise. Particularly with this type of technique that requires dexterity and good control. So finding inconsistencies with several similar pieces might suggest student.

Thanks, Frank!
As I obviously don't know much about glass school or student's pieces -- would their output be usually signed?

I would say not, unless they were on some kind of ego trip!  When I was at art school, I never signed the rubbish I produced !

Exhibition pieces are likely to be signed these days but not if they made dozens or hundreds of pieces for an installation. The exhibition put on by students during conference at ECA was quite remarkable in general with some really outstanding pieces.

I am fairly certain there are some graduation pieces on Scotland's Glass too.
