Michael Harris left England in 1968 for Malta.  In 1969 he set up the Mdina Glassworks with Eric Dobson.

We also moved to Malta in 1968 and bought a small house in Mosta, about 3.5 miles from Mdina.  We sold in 1970 before moving to Australia.
These three lovely pieces were kindly given to us by some very good friends who live nearby, and were Isle of Wight residents.
