Mdina glass ‘Helter Skelter’ vase by Michael Harris, Malta circa 1970’s

This is a beautiful Mdina art glass vase in a fiery red Volcano / Helter Skelter decor by Michael Harris, Malta circa 1970’s.

A fantastic design, very different from Midna’s usual natural Mediterranean inspired work. The tapered body has a wide flat disk rim and thick applied strapping, wrapping around the body in an undulating ‘Helter Skelter’ style. All in a vibrant cased glass with fiery red swirls for dramatic effect.

Catches the light beautifully, through the fiery red glass and applied strappoing, and with light shining on it or through it, perfect as a statement piece for display, as a table centrepiece etc.

Would make a fantastic addition to any collection of Mdina / Maltese / Art Glass and would complement any retro, vintage, 1970’s, minimal, modernist, Mediterranean or contemporary interior.

Measures 25 x 7.5 x 7.5cm / 10 x 3 x 3in.

In excellent condition, no marks, chips or scratches. Signed ‘Mdina’ to the base and has the Mdina and sales labels still intact.
