Jar

This glass jar was made in 1983 by David Kaplan and Annica Sandstrom at Lindean Mill Glass at Galashiels in Selkirkshire.

The spherical jar is made of semi-opaque pale blue and dark blue, opaque white and red, and colourless glass. The jar bears the diamond-engraved mark 'Lindean Mill .23'.

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.
