New Mdina Glass Article & Exhibition

Mid-century modern and studio glass lovers out there will love the new (March 2012) edition of Homes & Antiques magazine, as I’ve written new article on the beauty of Mdina Glass for it.
Already as popular with collectors as it is with those with an eye for retro, vintage, and modern interiors, you can learn how to spot a great piece, as well as the stories behind the company and Michael Harris, the fascinating and talented man who built it and provided the designs. The image above, courtesy of Homes & Antiques, is just a taster of what awaits you. Prices for the best pieces have risen tenfold over the past six years, but there are still plenty of bargains out there to be found.
On that note, I’m excited to announce two unmissable opportunities to buy Mdina Glass. The first is a selling exhibition being run by my friend and colleague Mark Newsum, of Newsum Antiques in the picturesque village of Winchcombe in the Cotswolds. Mark kindly supplied all the glass that’s featured in the article, and many of them are included in his exhibition, so you’ve got a chance to buy what you see. It opens on 19th March and runs until the 25th March, but you can check out an online catalogue by clicking here, or speak to Mark himself on 07968 196668.
The second is being organised by the Harris family themselves, who have chosen to sell a few select pieces from their collection of Mdina Glass through their website and studio shop near Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Many of them were featured in my book on Michael Harris, published in 2006, which has nearly sold out. To find out more about what they’re selling, visit the Isle of Wight Studio Glass website by clicking here, or send an email to, or call Dave Tolley on 01983 853526, selecting option 5.
Opportunities like this come along very rarely, so to have two at the same time is eye-wateringly rare. Don’t miss out!
