I wish I knew the emoticon for 'groan'. But honestly, Sue, you've caused more people to look at my glass vessel depicting a comic angel and turned a small ad into a thread. I thank you kindly. I said in the opening post "I welcome your comments" (or words to that effect) and I got them. I cannot then complain if I don't like them! Yes, I know my little angel is trite. But some people like that kind of stuff. And as an anomaly of modernism he is a bit of fun. And don't think I haven't noticed the gender bias. Angels don't have to be female!
But in comparison to some of the truly awful (and often expensive glass) there is - I'm surprised my angel caused a stir at all.
Art galleries and museums - where were you going? You just have to walk past the Pre Raphaelite stuff and get to the 20th century and then once you get to WW1 you have to start looking at graphic design. By WW2 you certainly have to look to the graphics and industrial design.
