What have I bought now??????
« on: August 02, 2006, 05:56:01 PM »
I've had a bad day today what with the triffid and now this. SWMBO says it looks an alien mated with dog poo. It measures 5" x 4.5" with a textured back surface to the glass and all four edges are frosted. I thought it had the look of Higgins style, but I'm open to all comments.
Please remember I've owned up in the past to having dubious taste in glass.

Slump lump :?:

Or perhaps someone did a course in glass casting.

I'm looking at this bug-eyed - I think it could be Andreas Meyer at Nahariya Glass, Israel who made some shockingly bad slump designs over the years.  Does it have a little metal hook at the back to hang it from?

Shouldn't that be screw-head-eyed Ivo.

More likely to have been marver cast than slumped, looking at the edges, which were probably frosted to get rid of the angle-iron marks (guess) with the copper pressed in.  :D

Not that I have that much experience of that sort of stuff and even if I did, would deny it! :lol:

No hanging hook to the back, it's so bizarre that I do find it interesting.

Paul....I can't add anything about attribution, but honestly, I find it scary!  It looks like some archaic effigy, or icon.  I wouldn't put it in the bedroom...might open its eyes and be glaring at you.... :shock:

Oh!!!  Maybe it's some kind of sign - it's an eagle owl!   :lol:  :lol:  :shock:
