Frank,
That auctionhouse is where the items came from, and they don't know anything about Makas.
Nevertheless I will check again and let you all know if I find new data.
Thanks so far,
Willem.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfngt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben sprt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfllt, und ein offeneres Verstndnis fr die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

As the only hits on the artist are in Holland and you got yours here, it seems probable that he works here.

Next step would be contacting the various glass galleries. In the UK there is a Crafts Council register in which you can get details of most artists' and crafts people, is there a similar organisation here?

There is an incredibly well documented and immensely helpful lady at the ministry of culture who can tell you at the drop of a hat if the artist features in any of her lists. I just wish I had kept her telephone number....
