So it's ok to stick Bjorn Weckstrom's foot in it...  ;D

Wonderful pics Frank and mghc!

should we ask mods to split the topic into the three threads of Studio Glass before more get added?  We were debating whether it might be good to have a this thread for early studio 1962-1979 and then a separate one for '79-;89 and then another for 1990 onwards.  That way,eventually we would have a 'progression' of studio glass through the periods and be able to see how influences and changes had happened maybe?

Frank, do you OWN that Fritz Akerboom? I have lusted after that piece since I first saw an image of it in 2000.
Thanks also for the John Airlie piece - supporting Christine's earlier John Airlie - an important character in the Studio Glass Movement indeed!
Anybody got any Helen Munro-Turner to show....?  ;D

I'm not actually sure Alison Kinnaird counts as part of the Studio Glass Movement, which I have always considered to be defined by being hot-worked glass, from a small pot, made by the artist themselves. (as well as the date)

Cheers, Sue (M)

Love the Bjorn Weckstrom foot Sue.   I think this is of the period of my Karlin Rushbrooke jug as he said it was one of his early pieces but unfortunately neither of them are marked.

Can I please make an appeal to our lovely mods to split this thread into different decades?

I think this one should be kept confined to the period from 23rd of March, 1962 until the end of the '70s, to allow for the spread of the movement from the States to the rest of the world and "get off the ground" - given this thread should be all about the "getting off the ground".
I've started another thread for the '80s, but a couple of images need moved from here to there, and I can see a discussion ensuing over whether or not Alison Kinnaird should have her fabulous work included in the "Studio Movement", which to me is all about HOT glass work.

Here's an image of an Eisch "Peacock" jug from the "Poesie in Glas" series, putting it at '77 or later.
Cheers, Sue (M)

The Akerboom, no sorry Sue.  I am sure you should be able to track him down he cannot be that far from you and have a chat! Someone needs to.
