Queensbury, at the time, was about the highest you could get to, in terms of creative arts. His support was the icing on the cake. :)

Just to add a couple of pieces to the list, two of which I have already showed in another thread.

The first one measures H 19 cm/7" - W 28 cm/11" - Signed Val Saint-Lambert - Samuel J Herman - 252 -1979.

The second one measures H 33 cm/13" - D 28 cm/11" - Signed Val Saint-Lambert - Samuel J Herman -125 -1979.

I have added an image with a, unfortunately empty, 75 cl wine bottle next to it, to put it's size in perspective. Unfortunately it doesn't show its iridescence, and the colours of the smaller vase don't show that well. I'm not used to taking pictures of this type of glass but learning and just trying to see what works.

Another piece I got is one also by Sam Herman and I had difficulties taking pictures of it, due to its size and the colours didn't show properly, so here are some images with different light sources and again, the empty bottle to show off its size. What looks like a large chip on the rim is a reflection, it is without damage.

H 36 cm/14" x W 45 cm /17,3/4" - Signed V200 - Samuel J Herman - 1989 - Weight 11 kg.

Glorious, Anne.
You've managed to breathe life into the pics of the final piece there.
The Venus de Milo can just step aside.  ;D
But it was Sam gave it life in the first place. 8) 8) 8)

Thank you Sue, it wasn't easy,  I was scared it would go through the glass top.

I wanted to add a few photos of this lovely set of 6 studio goblets, which were blown by Annette Meech at the Glasshouse, circa 1973-74.
Somewhat unusual to see a full group of these goblets together. The last goblet is badly damaged and thought it would be nice to have a record of it along with the others on the GMB for future reference.

Photos to follow over the next couple of posts, enjoy.  :)

 ;D One of these days, our collections should come together, Greg.  8)
They would really go well together.
I've got two Annette Meech goblets, but mine have bobbly stems.
When I first moved into a flat on my own in the '70s, I took myself off to Boots and bought a set of Ravenhead Apollo glasses for entertaining. I paid £3.45 and I was very proud of them. Very trendy.
They're an Annette Meech design, I discovered later!
Cheers, Sue (M)
