Sunshine Galore Thanks To Geoffrey Baxter!

Whitefriars Kingfisher Blue Sunburst VaseThe weather these past few days has greatly improved on the fog and rain from last week. The bright sunshine made me think about the Geoffrey Baxter range for Whitefriars Glass – the strong shapes and bright vivid colours. One shape inparticular came to mind, the Sunburst!

The Sunburst shape is pattern number 9676 and was designed by Geoffrey Baxter around 1967. This vase depicts a typical full sun and stands approximately 6″ tall.

Whitefriars Goes Mainstream – Cooking Up A Retro Collectable

January’s edition of our (almost) monthly newsletter has now gone online. It takes a look at Whitefriars’ textured range of moulded glass, which was made from 1967-80. In recent years it has become popular with retro enthusiasts and has become quite mainstream in its appeal.

In the newsletter, I’ve taken a look at the choices of colour and shape available, explained how these large,
chunky pieces were made and provided links to the two best Whitefriars websites on the net – whitefriars.com and whitefriarsorg.org.
