Same here - especially her work whilst still at the RCA, but it comes up so rarely.

There's a gorgeous piece in one of the Crafts Council contemporary British Glass catalogues called 'Stacked Form- Colour Elevation' -
I'm holding out for a largish piece like that with lots of colour ...well, when I say 'I'm holding out for' I mean 'When I am rich' Big Laughter

Aye, you need a deep pocket or two for the early bits - the first vase on this page, with the blue 'fins', was £350 (if memory serves) and that's only about 15cm tall.
