He also worked as a designer for Holmegaards Glassveark in Denmark and for Hadelands Glassveark in Norway. This meant that he had to develop unique ways of carrying out procedures, like casting on a foot to a wine glass. George's forms were, like him, honest, unpretentious, and quintessentially English. He, unlike many others, chose to devote his creative energies on the production of decorative domestic items, working at his studio in Bewdley, and after leaving teaching in the mid eighties, at his 15th century timber frame cottage in Herefordshire. Although his formal repertoire was, on the face of it, traditional, he imbued his forms, whether vases, goblets or bottles with distinctive character, both in shape and decoration.
He specialised in applied, linear decoration which was hooked into festoons round the forms, and added'splashed' applications of coloured shards onto clear and coloured backgrounds. His choice of the traditional was expressive of George as a person; he was, for example an expert with the English Long Bow, which he would make from scratch.His exact copies of Medieval glasses were much in demand from collectors and Museums. The glass measures 14.2cm in height and is 7cm wide across the mouth - the foot measures 7.5cm across - the total unpacked weight is 396.5g.
