I picked this up from a charity shop.

I was wondering if someone had tried to add a home made signature with a 'dremmel' type etcher thing - failed and then give it to the charity shop.

Any ideas appreciated.

I haven't seen a bowl with a different coloured rim like this before.

Hi, not the best of signatures to be sure but not necessarily faked. I did a search on 2001 dated pieces but came up empty handed.

Thanks RV, really appreciate your help : )

I've spent about 10 hours or so going through names I can find on the net seeing if there are any similar to this scratch Waaah  

To me it seems a good quality piece, but then I don't know much about glass.

thanks once again

I think I have found the maker of this bowl Jumping For Joy

I think it's by Mike Hunter Twists glass, could anyone confirm this please.

I would ask him directly but I cannot find a contact e mail address.

Definitely Mike Hunter, yours is signed M Hunter Twists 01, so made in 2001.

Mike Hunter is a superb glassmaker and his paperweights are second to none. I had one of these bowls, it was beautifully made, photo of it here: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/MiscellaneousGlass#5986142187900201986

Hi JoFish,

yes I agree with you, Mike is a very good glassmaker.

I had never heard of him until I found this lovely bowl and it is very interesting reading about him.

He has a great talent. wish I had one : )
