Postcard of Vase.
© National Museums Scotland


This glass vase was made in 1979 by Annette Meech at The Glasshouse in London.

The vase is made of red glass with red, blue-green, yellow-green and white streaks on a colourless ground at the rim. It bears the diamond-engraved marks 'Annette Meech' and '1979'.

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.
