Yes Peter, but when this becomes old, it will still be in the same echelons of serious "high" art as it is today.
That is the lovliest Helen Millard I've seen. It is absolutely stunning.
I cannot blame you for succumbing to this. The very best is always the very best.

 ;) Care to do a part-time exchange, (occassionally) for my Alison Kinnaird Storm Lantern? You could enjoy that while I enjoy this, then we could swap back??????
Cheers, Sue (M)

I have never seen Helen Millard's work, now I am smitten!  I have to have some of it... Absolutely breathtaking!
Thank you for sharing that with us Peter. :)

Helen is a friend of  mine and a fan of my son in law her cameo glass is amazing she works many months on each piece , she normally does the glass  fairs , some of the top glassies have said her work is as good as any of the guys who did cameo work for Webb i totally agree , i am sure she will be at Birmingham in November , just look and you will be smitten , her scarcity is probably to do with arranging a wedding . i wont say whos . i would love that piece , i have several of Helens early pieces including paperweights . jp  Thats fabulous Peter is it for sale ?

I further fan from the Antipodes.  Absolutely a stunner. (Where is the greeen man symbol when you want to use it DOZENS of times?).  You would not get me to sell it either.
