ISLE OF WIGHT GLASS - come visit with us!
« on: March 16, 2006, 04:54:00 PM »
A few months ago Steve and I visited the Isle of Wight Glass Studio. We spent time with master glass-craftsman, Timothy Harris - and we took many photos. The Isle of Wight Glass kindly helped us with further information, and we are now delighted to go live with our feature article.

I hope you enjoy it. You can go direct to the main menu page for the feature (there are many linked pages from it).

You can also go direct from our website, which currently has a live link to the feature.

Thank you so much, everyone, for your kind and supportive comments. I really appreciate them.

My heartfelt thanks go to Timothy Harris and his team at the Isle of Wight Glass. Their passion and creativity show clearly in all they do.

Thank you so much, Glen!

I have to confess a passion for the Mosaic pattern myself, (I like the very big ones!).
Cheers, Sue (M)

Oh Sue yes. That Mosaic range is amazing. I would love to fill my house with it (well, the spaces where there isn't any Carnival, that is  :lol: )
