Funky Cool Mdina

These axe-shaped vases (actually called a 'Fish-Vase') are the designs of Michael Harris. Michael was a singularly inventive British glass blower who moved to Malta in the late 60's in order to start the Mdina Glass Studio. The one in the front is a wild-colored amalgam of swirls and is signed. The saturated blue version is signed and dated 1978. With his ability to create abstract expressions, Harris may be remembered as the Jackson Pollock of glass.
