About Mdina Glasware:
An important forerunner of the international studio glass movement, Michael Harris (1933-1994) was the founder and creative brilliance behind Mdina Glass, which he and his wife Elizabeth opened in 1969 on the island of Malta. Harris’ intriguing glasswork reflects the rich colors and textures of the sun, the sea, and the Maltese landscape. Michael Harris died in 1994, but his glasswork remains highly collectible today, with his earlier signed pieces being considered a “holy grail” for art glass collectors.
Mdina Glass continues to produce unique and collectible art glass under the inspired direction of Joseph Said, who has been with the company since its inception. Every contemporary piece of Mdina Glass is the product of a team of highly skilled craftsmen and artisans, working together to create beautiful and collectible glass pieces that reflect the beauty and mystery of the Maltese islands.
