Dartington Studio Glass

I too would like to see the original pictures Sue - I missed out 1st time around.

I think Thrower's 1980s designs in clear glass reflect that period, it's a shame that Lesley Jackson does not show any of the 1960s - 70s textured range in 20th century Factory Glass (although the text states he designed over 500 items for the company).

Here are two Dartington Studio pieces - which if I am correct are post Thrower (he left in the 1980s, died in 1987) I am less sure of the studio range than Thrower's designs - names like Rachel Woodman and Jane Beebe spring to mind ( :roll: )




Thanks

There are some pictures of a Dartington Studio blue/ochre dish I have in my yobunny album.

The diameter is 24cm. There appears to be a white layer sandwiched between the blue and yellow ones.
