I live in hope that one day someone will decide to speak out. My belief is that it would bring more benefits to the whole Scottish paperweight industry as scandalous publicity is the best sort. Paul Ysart has kept his crown but there are other who could be up there with him. A good round of press exposure would give a much needed boost to a struggling industry.
One or two names do get thrown around from time to time but those could just be red-herrings, there were more involved than most people realise. But it will take a whistleblower from the inside to reopen the casefiles.
Too many closures, too many unsung heroes. Scotland has many world leading glass artists and it would be sad for that lead to slowly die out. There is a need for an industry figurehead, another Colin Terris. Possibly the Northlands project http://www.northlandsglass.com/
but after ten years, still not widely known and perhaps more concerned with the craft than the region. (Which is not a criticism as it does a good job).
