Turnmill Studio weight? Id help please.
« on: March 02, 2019, 03:38:43 PM »
I'm posting for a member who thinks this is Turnmill and sent me images for resizing. If it's not Turnmill, what studio in London could it be?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi

I hope I have mastered the down sizing of pictures and a big thank you to Sue for your help yesterday.

I was just wondering if the signature was Ed Burke or M Burke ? Any ideas ?  ???

Thank you and I hope these pictures work alright !

Ed and Margaret Burke are not in London, and that's not how they sign their work. They use their initials.
It says "something" Studio London 1987.

Thanks Sue it was just a thought, hopefully someone on this site will recognize the writing. I have another paperweight that is marked Turnmill Studio which looks so similar to this one. Another one I have is just marked Turnmill with no signature.

Do you know who the glassblowers were around the late 1980's at Turnmill. ?

Thank you
Louise

All I know is that Turnmill was where our very own Adam Aaronson worked, at one time.  :)

He's a very busy man and he doesn't come along every day. Have a little patience. I'm sure he will find it.

Looks a bit like it might read Glasseye Studio but I am far from certain...

Is that not located near the American volcano that erupted, rather in London?
I seem to remember they put bits of eruption into pwts.  ???

I know, just trying to make sense of it. There may not be enough letters to make glasseye anyway. Perhaps one of those that becomes obvious once deciphered!
