There are certainly some landscape bowls posted here already. I resized some images for Mr Walker and although he didn't know it was me, I think I nearly tripped him up at a fair.
(Shamelessly name-dropping here! ;D )

Do you think Kanga originally contained some 'roo juice?
Nice little finds, Keith. :)

Glass / Lampwork horses and a kangaroo !
« Last post by keith on Today at 01:31:05 PM »
The horses are2 inches high and the 'roo' 4 inches, all came from Cradley home of the Swingewood family so thought it worth adding to the collection, probably turn out to be made miles away but I like them anyway  ;D ;D
The kangaroo needs a wash !  :o ;D

Don't fret about the number of pics, they're fabulous. :)

There's an effect in the middle of the crizzley bits that looks like a big flower in the middle of it. ;D
I can't tell from them if it's iridised or not. You need to get the light reflecting off the surface to detect it, and it might be very subtle.

Hi Rosie, forgot to ask whether you had any of his bowls depicting West Highland landscapes - know the area fairly well, as a result of having done the WHW - more than once !  :)

Hi Rosie, not an easy signature to decipher - I think that could be taken as an understatement - no offence intended William !

Anyway, it's well and truly etched in my memory now.

Thanks :)

Thanks Rocco (I never saw a piece of Ingrid that was signed before, so I'll be keeping this image archived for future reference)

Hi again,just taken some more photos of the vase while in the UK.I am still unsure if it is iridised,quite hard to tell with the blue.What i can tell you that it changes to a dark purple colour in a dimmer light.Also can anyone advise on the colourway of this,cannot seem to find it on the Ysart Glass site.Hopefully not too many photos posted.
Thanks Paul.

Hi Paul, thank you for your comments. I agree, it's very similar to the pallet vase, but not the same. When you say 'worth a look', could you direct me somewhere to research further?
Thanks again :)
