This glass bottle was made in 1980 by Isle of Wight Studio Glass Ltd. at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.

The bottle is made of clear blue and yellow glass mottled and streaked yellow-brown. The design is called 'Azurene Blue'.

Studio Glassmaking has established itself firmly as an accepted British craft. For the first half of the 20th century neither British Industries nor British Art Colleges encouraged artists to work in glass as was done in Northern Europe and the USA. The first glass department to change this was that built up at Edinburgh College of Art by Helen Monro-Turner in the 1950s and 60s. This coincided with a revolution in the technology of glassmaking pioneered by American artists in the early 1960s. A further impetus was provided by the setting up of The Glasshouse in London which provided working space for graduates of the Royal College of Art. A number of similar corporate ventures have now been established, including several in Scotland.
