I've made contact with Marc McCarty, the glassblower at the Devil's Hole on Jersey, he's the only working glassblower on the island at this time, and asked if he knew of Rachael having worked on Jersey but he came up blank as well.

We know that Charlie Meaker was on Jersey in 1986 (link in  reply #6 above) which would appear to be The Strawberry Farm, St.Peter as mentioned here from 1986 and again as "Strawberry Farm - glass blowing, leather workers, craft goods as well as strawberries" here so that presumably is where Strawberry Studios comes in. I can't (so far) find any more glassworkers connected to Strawberry Farm other than Paul Musgrove in the link M posted in reply #6 above and Jane Charles who was at Strawberry Farm Glassworks, Jersey,  c.1984-86.

Stewart Hearn's CV says that he was 'Occasional Glassmaker's assistant' during the period 83-86 to Charlie Meaker, Jim Griffiths, and Rachael Woodman and Neil Wilkin.
Another link between Rachael Woodman and Charlie Meaker.

this is an interesting piece:

Apparently the auction listing says:
'a modern Art Deco style glass bowl by Charlie Meaker of Ireland'  (don't know who that might be? but the bowl has some similarity in design with Rachael's bowl )
