    Tall electric blue vase with similar decor paperweights in the foreground. The weights were not made by Heaney but by his co-workers. They have a different engraved provenance [CBHG] and each has a date and a different small round sticker similarly titled. I think most of the paperweights were made from leftover blobs of glass or what was in the pots after the major pieces were finished for the day - saved wastage as glass is costly to produce. The tall vase created by Heaney has a hollow core but it is very heavy - excellent for hitting burglars over the head. It was made in 1992. Height is 35 cms and 8.5 cms across the base. The paperweights have varying diameters with the largest one having a width of just under 8 cms. The smallest paperweight is shaped in the form of a shell. They were made in the years, 1989; 1990 and 1991. I think the studio's location on the coast might be linked to the design of the shell weight which was a popular motif of Heaney's. They were also at the lower end of his price range but have increased in price quite dramatically if you want to purchase one today.
