Isle of Wight Studio Glass Vase
This is a brief story of how a family, of the most innovative and prolific exponents of Studio Glass-making, has helped propel this country to the top of the world glass-making tree. The birth of Studio Glass Up until the early s, glass making was a somewhat staid and classic process to produce useful objects. Then an American ceramicist called Harvey Littleton explored the possibility to produce a mix of glass that would enable one man in a studio to produce objects, useful and decorative, on his own or with one or two assistants rather than as a factory-based multiple operative system required to complete one item as was, up until then, the norm.
Eventually with experimenting, successes came and he tutored several keen followers in this new Studio Glass making process. One of these early students, Samuel Herman, was invited on a scholarship to come to the RCA in , where Michael Harris was the head of the Industrial Glass Design department and he showed Michael what had been achieved. British Studio Glass Movement This was a light bulb moment for Michael and, after many twists and turns, the British Studio Glass Movement was born, albeit that Michael had to move to Malta to prove that it was viable largely due to lack of support in this country.

Many of the designs created by Michael Harris continued to be made at Mdina Glass after he left. The company is still active today, and is now run by Joseph Said , who was Michael’s most skilled apprentice. Made by Mdina, signed “Mdina “. Probably by Joseph Said.
