Blenko -ish Bowl & Platter - signed !

Does anyone recognize the signature on the bottom of this small blown vase? It came with the underplate. Both pieces are signed.

judging by the style of sig (also on your "two rivers"vase in the other post) I'd say American studio glass.

They have a Blenko-ish look in color and texture, maybe also Bishoff.
But v v unusual for items from these companies to be signed and I don't know of any designers at Blenko with a name to fit this signature.
 
Could be someone who trained there and then went solo.

Try these Blenko sites for their designer / artists names http://glassoholic.yobunny.org.uk/articles.php?lng=en&pg=11
