Hello Artius Glass & I.o.W. Studio Glass Enthusiasts!

They say 'another year older – deeper in debt'! Surely not a generalisation but true of course in many unfortunate cases. However for those of us at a 'certain time of life' it could be that we have spent a lifetime not spending to end up in an ever decreasing spiral of debt, but actually realising that after retirement we found that our mortgage and buying into many products we have a passion for' was actually investing, rather than spending with no appreciative benefit. Especially so if that passion was (and still is we hope|) something which is tangibly an item of substance and quality from bricks and mortar to durable 'art'.

Yes, you have now no doubt spotted my crafty drift! Could I be referring to something as very special as 'Studio Glass'? Oh yes, I certainly could !!

So, dear reader, that's my sales pitch for this newsletter. The world has not stopped turning due to Brexit or any other newsworthy saga which dominates the media. I have seen it all too often in my business life and whilst it is a hiccough (or hiccup as it is now known) it is NOT permanent and Christmas has not been cancelled as a result. It is just a temporary blip and dip in buying and spending confidence in my experience.

So now the canny amongst you surely realise that this is your moment – invest while the market is low and enjoy with a warm self satisfying glow, the fact that you are one step ahead of the prophets of doom and you will benefit as a result.

I will say no more except that if you wish for confirmation go to the library (do they still exist??) and take out a book on the subject of 'How To Invest' and it will confirm all my rantings above.

So, may we help you with that moment which has come your way because it is ~

The Artius Glass 1/2 Price Sale Time!

It comes once a year only to say goodbye to some old friends that have languished somewhat and so ~

                                                                                                                  'Azurene' Pink Conical Vase

One of the many designs in the Studio's world famous 'Azurene' finishes. The application of 22ct gold and Sterling Silver to the surface of hot glass perfected by Michael Harris in 1977 giving him and the Studio world wide fame. Most 'pink' (or ruby) glass was made by adding gold oxide to clear glass to create this colour. However in these cases it was produced by applying chemically coloured ruby in either small chips or powdered glass to create the same effect to the body of the item.

Golden Peacock was THE most successful range the studio ever produced and ran without a break, but in various shapes, sizes and colours, for 20 years. The most successful was Golden Peacock Royale in a gorgeous royal blue but this pink was a pretty close second and therefore slightly scarcer.
