These classic pieces of Scottish glass designed by Domhnall O Broin (1934 - 2005) are starting to become highland collectable.  During his life, he made a significant contribution to Scottish glass, glass design and glass technology. He was initially apprenticed at Waterford Crystal and later studied Orrefors in Sweden.   

he was awarded a prestigious Andrew Grant scholarship and continued to study glass technology and design at Sheffield and Edinburgh universities. He also studied glass design under one of Scotland's finest glass artists, Helen Monro Turner at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA).  

He played a pivotal role in founding the Caithness Glassworks, which opened in 1961. By 1965 he was the sold company design and managing director. Sadly he decided to emigrate to the USA in 1966 - and his association with Caithness came to and end.   

Domnhall was much influenced by Scandinavian design but used Scottish-inspired colourings in his glasswares. Domnhall's belief was "We have to be at least as good as Orrefors.” This stylish early Caithness vase by him is certainly inspired by vases produced by Riihimaen Lasi glass in Finland in the 1960s.

This vase measures 9 inches in height with a diameter of 2 1/4 inches. Unpacked it is 850 grams. It is a lovely bright blue colour with a chunky clear glass base. There are two rings or hoops at the base. An example of this vase is in the collection of Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. 

It is in good condition with no damages. 

It will be sent in the UK with Royal Mail Recorded Delivery (Small Parcel). This will be applied to your order at the checkout.
