A shelf of MDG 'Earthtones'.......
« on: December 31, 2015, 07:43:28 PM »
Hi,
 The center weight has a blue core so is not a true MDG earthtone  :)

Cheers,

Patrick.

Ps, Not to be confused with Mdina 'Earthtones'

I'm starting to think that blue along with Earthtones should be considered a "true" MDG Earthtones, just never a Mdina Earthtones.
Your "new" Lollipop is Earthtones encased in a sommerso layer of blue under clear, and I have recently acquired a chimney vase which is MDG Earthtones, encased in blue, now there's your weight, with the blue core.
We do know of three pieces where blue is used with Earthtones, in MDG.  :)

It's a beautiful picture, Patrick. The reality must be miles better. 8)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Another 'Fish' has just swam across the Atlantic with the help of my Sister......  :)

Certainly MDG and a form of 'MDG Earthones'

Boffo at his best !
