Mdina Glass
The importance of Mdina Glass is that without it Isle of Wight Glass would possibly never have existed. Mdina Glass was the first studio set up by Michael Harris in 1968. Due to political pressure, Mike and his family left in 1972 and founded the  world famous Isle of Wight Glass Studio.

Mdina Glass Large early trial for 'Japanese Vase'



A unique very early 'Trial' for what ultimately became the 'Japanese Vase' made solely by Michael. The construction shows the early similar characteristics of colour dipping as used in the iconic 'Fish Vase' but used in a different manner where the green colour has been substituted for the clear glass double dipped 'wings'. Not obvious in the images but both sides have been flattened as with the lollipop section of a fish vase. The yellow gold is nicely dotted with tiny seeds of Silver from the silver chloride used for that colour.
