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.

Thought I would share this 1977 Ravenshill Paperweight I found yesterday. Signed Pauline Solven RH 779 1977.

A good size at about 7 by 8cm weighing in at 600g. Generous clear casing on top with a recessed bubble into mottled browns. The browns raise upwards around the bubble and then fall back whilst changing into tree moss greens. The greens drip into blue and then the lower is encased with wispy clouds of white.

A devil of a time reading the etched writing as it is over white but I got there in the end :0)
