 ::) I think you are right about it being a smaller and quite contemporary uk company. I've seen hanging balls like this, in Carnelian Crafts in Crieff, and I did look to see who it was, and I've forgotten. (hence the  ::) ::) ::) , they're not at you, they're for me forgetting again.)
The way the splodges are worked is the same - into teardrop shapes, going around the middle and flaring out in a sort of paisley kind of way.
I've looked the shop up on the web, but these are not featured.
They are fairly recent, There were hanging balls before, but not with this sort of more deliberate design.

Thanks Roy

I was drooling over them a little bit.  :) I liked the paisley effect.
But they're too heavy for our christmas tree. ::)
I'll remember to find the name of the maker next time I go there and report back.
It may be a good few weeks, though.
Carnelian Crafts is run by Jane Drysdale, who was married to the late Stuart Drysdale of Perthshire Paperweights. She makes her own fused glass pieces there.
I won't forget, I'll write it down.

are the balls you were thinking of the Sienna Glass ones?

although I can't think I've seen much else other than bauble type things, no vessels that I can think of

No, not Sienna.  :)
These ones are a little bit better and slightly more individual. There are Sienna ones in the same shop, I know exactly where you're coming from, but the Sienna ones don't do as much "sort of paisley" effect, deliberately. In them, it happens more by chance. ;D
