In this landmark book, the fascinating story behind one of the most influential, and until now largely ignored, glassmakers of the late 20thC will be revealed for the first time. An important forerunner of the international studio glass movement, Michael Harris was the founding and creative drive behind both Mdina Glass from 1968-72 and Isle of Wight Studio Glass from 1972 until his untimely death in 1994. At both factories, Harris designed and produced innovative, beautiful and exciting ranges that were sold internationally and are loved by thousands. Produced in association with the Harris family and major private collectors, the book is illustrated with over 250 specially commissioned, full colour images by Graham Rae and covers all major ranges including Aurene, Azurene and Meadow Garden, as well as his famous 'Fish' vases. The book closes with a dedicated section on marks, signatures and labels and a unique section showing all shapes produced in major ranges by the Isle of Wight studio, year by year. This is the ultimate book for Mdina or Isle of Wight glass collectors and any 20th century glass enthusiast. A FREE price guide insert will also accompany the catalogue.
