Annette Meech
« on: April 24, 2006, 04:36:55 PM »
On a separate note - has anyone here ever heard of Annette Meech?  My husband (at the same time as he bought this lovely pink AA piece) also bought a goblet that initially he thought might be Mdina but on close inspection it has a signature underneath which says Annette Meech 1973.  I managed to locate her current glassworks in Sivigny in France and it turns out the goblet was one of the first items she made on graduation from the Royal College of Art and she told me the value was around £75 - she made very few of them.  Aren't I lucky to have a husband with such a superb eye for glass and a real nose for a bargain... I'll post the link in a sec - can't find the picture ....

here's the goblet - Annette told me that the mottled silvery brown effect was made by throwing silver nitrate(?) at it (silver something anyway - my memory isn't what it was!) - hubby bought it from Oxfam for £5.

:D  :shock: :mrgreen:

Lovely! I'm very jealous!

I have a very strange piece by her, dated '71. I don't care what anybody else says, it's a mushroom shape. It is not a dildo.
 :cry: Still no camera!

I had Apollo glasses back in the late '70's. It's really hard to find big ones now, even the wee ones are fairly rare.
Cheers, Sue (M)

LOL - I'm dying to see your Annette Meech dildo - sorry I mean MUSHROOM!!!  Was just thinking though, if it's dated 1971 that might be one of her graduation pieces from the RCofA perhaps?  Or possibly one of her very first pieces from the Glasshouse in Covent Garden ....

:shock::lol::shock:

I do hope so! The tall body is a lovely blue, with texture within the colour, there is a top-knot wrapped around thickly at the top, tapering in a spiral down the body. The tapering top-knot is yellowy-browny irridesent-y.
