France / Re: Daum Vase - César Baldaccini.

Just to add … found out yesterday that this vase is from a series called 'Agora', still attributed to him, CB,  but can't confirm it yet.

I then placed the vase on a sideboard … (yes, some people still have sideboards  :D) … switched on another ceiling light but here it's closer to it and it turned a bit more violet (the blue is a reflection of the telly) ....switched it off, lit the lamp next to it, and it turns to this nice aqua-marine type of  colour … can't think of what else to call it.

Looks like you've enjoyed yourself too, it really is difficult trying to show what you're talking about with this type of glass.

I've taken several pictures and these are the ones that resemble most to what i'm seeing with different lightsources.

The bright pink one in the post above is taken with UV light, as I mentioned before. I've left the piece in place and switched on the main ceiling light, and it turned a darker violet if not mauve, darker than the  colour by daylight on my coffee table, at the very top of this page.
I then switched off the light, and held a small LED torch in it, and it turned bright blue. Finally, I took a picture with flash and it turned dark grey.

I had a bowl like that (in that under certain light it just views as a dull grey almost grey transparent glass if you like.) I'll see if I can find pics on the board somewhere.
It was bright green in the charity shop I bought it from. Looked fabulous (very Scandinavian looking).
Got it home, unpacked the bag in great excitement ... and what came out was a knicker-elastic pink bowl.  Hugely disappointing.
I sold it to a friend in the end,  who has displayed it under a fabulous funky neon light thing, where it views as pink in the daylight but goes green when she turns on that light in her sitting room. 

Edit - Bowl is here - there may be some info that might help you search - rare earths? dichroic?

Manufacturers of glass pressed, glass moulds, glass house tools, and glass cutters mills
... have effected some important improvements in the manufacture of glass cutters mills

Thanks for your help.
