I did sort of mean to start this thread on the 23rd of March, the "official" birthday, the annivesary of the Toledo lectures, but the gmb was down and  revamping and life sort of got in the way.

I thought a good way to celebrate this birthday would be by all of use getting together with images we have of pieces from the very early days and having another lovely thread full of glorious show and tell images.

Well, that's the idea. Unfortunately my images aren't that glorious, although the glass itself is.

so to start:
Pauline Solven, RCA '67
Sam Herman, London '67 (I know you've all seen this before. I make no apology for repeating it. It deserves repeating.)
Annette Meech '71
Dillon Clarke '71
Cheers, Sue (M)

Excellent idea Sue.

I am taking the liberty of posting this photo of your 1973 George Elliot goblet.

That's ok, John -  I shall take the liberty of showing your clear yellow button-rimmed very early, Mdina globe.

and my non-cobalt early Fish
my amethyst button-rimmed "pulled ear" vase
and my "Crizzle Stone" bottle (that, as you may remember, is thanks to you  :-* )

All the above are very early Mdina, and most likely to be Michael Harris' work

Cheers, Sue (M)

Although this item is not in the same art glass category; John Airlie developed the small-scale studio furnace in about 1970. This piece is pre 1976, as Kirkhill Glass closed in that year

Sue — Thanks for starting this topic, as I had not really appreciated what Studio Glass was.   I found an interesting and seemingly authoritative overview in Judith Miller's 20th Century Glass.   I can't say that I fully appreciate what it is, but I will take more care about describing glass as studio, trial, or experimental.

So that I do not to entirely swamp this thread here are some group photos of work by Michael Harris while he was at Mdina (1968-1972).

The Australian art glass movement got underway a bit later. The influence of Sam Herman's time at the Jam Factory in Adelaide cannot be overstated. Here are four items signed as follows

1. Samuel J. Herman 1975 SA243
2. Stanislav Melis 1977 S.J.H. Studio
3. RJ Knottenbelt K?G 1977 SJH Studio
4. Peter Goss SA2 S.J. HERMAN STUDIO

The last three date from the year when Herman ran his own studio at the Jam Factory, employing staff and recent graduates to assist him and to do their own work, obviously closely following the master. In the Australian way, all three of them were immigrants - from Slovakia, Netherlands and Britain respectively - and all three went on to have substantial careers in studio glass.
