2nd item down. Iniital observation is the slumping is not as pronounced.

For this list we need country, name, dates, activity.

I would suggest a new topic when we only have partial data so that the subject can be researched and filled. His designs are either transfer or screen printed - presumably onto blanks.

Jascha Brojdo moved from Ukraine to New York in 1937 and designed glassware and ceramics under the name Georges Briard Designs. He died July 30th 2005.

From web searches he did a fair amount of slumped glass and a lot of transfer printed work. Seemingly very prolific and some astounding stuff around!

Only relevant book I can find is Designed & Signed by Leslie Pina isbn 0887409350 covering 50's & 60's artists and designers on houseware.

He designed for the Glass Guild, according to ads, could this be the same as Morgantown Glassware Guild Inc?

Heaton, Higgins and Briard also feature in Pina's "circa fifties glass" q.v.
