Paperweight with signature help. ID = Fleur Tookey
« on: May 27, 2016, 06:23:50 PM »
Does anyone recognise this paperweight?
Kind of looks as if the decoration is a finger print.
Any help welcome :)

One of the original students working with Sam Herman at the RCA in 1972 at and involved in setting up the Glasshouse, associated with it.

I have some information from a leaflet produced by CCA in London, published in 2008.

When the Glasshouse closed in '88, she rented space with James Watts at Barleylands, but got dissatisfied with not having her own facilities and left glass for a while.

She then set up a small company making things for gardens with mirrors, which gave her an income.

As of the publishing date ('08), she was studying part-time at Richmond College, doing kiln forming work and "embarking on a new journey".
Cheers, Sue (M)
