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 MdinaGlassStudio. 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.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
