Good idea, Adam  :clap: - whoops now to deal with the business of "cold-calling"!

I have not been able to find much out about Wayne Filan at all. I bought the piece from Alison Snelgrove  :thup: , who had done research on him, but the trail had gone completely cold. The only mention she could find was in a house move, a long time ago, (through a land register).
I have found a small mention on p.59 of Martha Drexler Lynn's "American Studio Glass 1960-1990".

"One year later, (than 1969) the Philadelphia College of Art included glass in its ceramics department curriculum, and the future glass artists William Bernstein, Dan Dailey and Wayne Filan built their first glass furnace."
(book Ref. "Roland Jahn, "Future of Education", The Glass Art Society Journal (1987): 82.)
Cheers, Sue (M)

My latest Solven piece - signed for Ravenshill, 1976.

I'm not a HUGE fan of this vase - it's a little too brown for my taste -  but I do like the opaline 'swag' decoration
