Michael is a world renowned glass engraver and has engraved this 29cm high lead crystal vase with a Chinese dragon specifically as a prize for the museum’s raffle. He uses the challenging copper-wheel technique where the glass is moved over the tool rather than the tool over the glass.  This is a rare opportunity to acquire a piece by this remarkable maker.

Raffle tickets will be available to buy until 5pm on Sunday 5th June. The draw took place at 12pm on June 6th. The winner of the glass was I. POTTER. Other winners were:  K Yerbury, E Green, H Watts, H Channon, J Cox, A Albright, T Hancock, V Winfield, P Orme and A Poole.
