I happened to see these on ebay and on page 25 of Mark Hill's it shows a pic. of a sculpture made of spare glass blocks from a private domestic architectural commission. Were these blocks just a one-off ? ....Where's that Christmas list I was writing ? !

Not a one-off thing, no.  :)
I've got an amethyst one and I know of others who have them too.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Me too but my bid was limp by comparison and not high enough to register by that stage. :cry:

I had plans for framing them in a nice deep box frame with four led light strips inside, they would have looked great hanging on the wall at night....
Well, I guess they would have looked good at any time. ;D

They do indeed - but I take it they're not yours any more, Martyn!
That's what I would have done with them too - except I have no space for it.
Cheers, Sue (M)
