This section is to celebrate the '50th' anniversary of the Studio Glass movement and is to post Studio Glass pieces from 1990 onwards.
The aim of the different sections is to be able to 'see' a progression and development in Studio Glass over time.

Paperweight from The Glasshouse (set up in 1969 in Neal Street,Covent Garden,London)
dated 1990 and signed either AM or HM (I thought it was HM for Helen Millard but looking afresh I might be wrong and it could be AM for Annette Meech? maybe) 3812 The Glasshouse

A cameo piece, by Ramski Art Glass, October '92.

Now I am getting confused ???
The previous thread covers  '80s-'90s surely so why another from '90 onwards?

Chris, I will ask Sue to amend the title of the other thread to read 1980-1989. At the start of the other thread it says for glass from 1980-1990, so the header needs amending.
It was though t it would be a good idea to split this topic so that progression of Studio glass can be seen through the periods with this one showing 1990 onwards.

a very large lost wax sculpture by James O'Reilly (O'Reily/O'Rily - difficult to read).  There are other smaller large perfume bottle size versions of this in Broadfield House.  This one is signed and dated 1995

I know m  :) but the 3 things I have included were actually from the '90s so they need moving to this one.
Read the title '80s-'90s so put them in that one ;D

yes  :) I was a little late starting the new topic -   thought better to sort at the start of this, so that the threads will continue over time. 
It's a fantastic idea from Sue, and I for one will really enjoy seeing the progression of Studio Glass over time. 
Whilst there are books on the subject, there is no ongoing resource, and history gets 'lost' if it is unrecorded or in bits and piece.
Hopefully the Glass Message Board will end up containing a comprehensive resource on this subject encompassing worldwide Studio Glass items and makers.
Apologies to the mods from me for extra work caused :)

A Stuart Akroyd piece, produced sometime around the late 90s I believe.
