Striking similarity to the piece discussed in this topic: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3649.0.html

The shape is very like a vase that Bengt Orup designed for Johansfors (Smoke and Ice p. 52). I've got a vase with the same technique, which has air bubbles and black metallic particles. However, the colour is wrong and the bubbles are smaller than in your vase.

I have the Smoke & Ice book, and I'm inclined to say that mine is Hoglund, based on form and technique, except the lack of signature is troubling.  I think his pieces are always signed.

No they're not always signed - Ivo has stated this already earlier up in the thread.  I've owned several different pieces of his work but interestingly I once had two identical Hoglund  bowls - one was signed but the other wasn't.  Annoyingly, the photographs are on my previous hard-drive which conked out a year or so ago.

although the colour is slightly different, the bubbles and black bits look identical

Putting potatos in a glass pot is an old and traditional method. Preferably they should be as green as possible ( ie exposed to the light). It is believed that a chemical called glycoalkaloids  is released which helps the "boil" - highly technical term this! - and the glass froths up and after an hour or two clarifies itself, of excess tiny seed and bubble. More modern glassmakers did not let it settle to experiment on the effects this produced!
We prefer to use branches of green bark to stir up the boil and allow as much gas to come to the surface and exit from the molten glass. Of course if you want bubbles in glass.....

The first piece in this thread is with out doubt NOT designed by Erik Hoglund.

Magnor have done pieces like this, but my guess is Danish Holmegaard.

The vase is from Björkshult glassmill that was active from 1898 to 1978. This piece is most likely from the mid sixties and the designer is probably Hans-Christian Wagner.

WHOA, talking about obscure!  What is the basis for this attribution?
Thanks.
