Philip Jacobs or is it.
« on: February 05, 2013, 10:07:42 AM »
So in a little op shop at East Gosford in NSW Australia I buy this glass plate.  It has a sticker, a signature and a brilliant colour and design. The only Philip Jacobs I can find is the USA  http://www.earthandfirestudio.net/artist_statement.html. I have emailed him with pictures of the peice hoping he can identify it and give me a year and place so we can archive it here,.

Doing a bit of lateral thinking, I wondered if this might be by Philip Jacobs the UK fabric designer? We know that designers get asked to do all sorts of things, not just what they are best known for - so it's perhaps worth an ask? http://www.flickr.com/people/philipjacobs/

Hi Lee,

Did you find an answer to your quandry? I have just picked up a similar piece in Port Macquarie with the same signature and sticker. I researched Earth & Fire and that signature is so diferent I knew it wasn't theirs. Then I found this post so am informed but in the same place as you. Who is Philip Jacobs?

Has anyone come up with more information please?

Cheers
Steve.

Yep same sticker and signature.  What a frustration.
