I have a small pot vase in this design, (Ripple?, I'll check). I bought in from ebay even before I met Allister. It was listed as IoWSG, I knew it wasn't, but it looked interesting and I got it anyway.
Then, when the Cambridge fair first went to Chilford and I was helping set up, I saw Allister's Platinum vase and made a bee-line for his stand. I discovered then my little pot was his work - so I told him about it.
He jumped about and shouted over to a colleague; "I've arrived! I've had something sold and bought on ebay!"
