No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

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.
