The Mdina Glass factory was founded in Malta in 1968 by Michael Harris (1933 – 94), an ex- RCA tutor, who was inspired by the scenery on the island, and the colours used in the glass reflect the sun, sea and sand of the landscape. Due to the political situation, he left in 1972 and set up the Isle of Wight Glass factory. Since 1981 the Mdina factory has been run by Joseph Said, one of the original apprentices, and is still producing high-quality glass. The pieces from the early years are highly desirable, particularly those signed by Michael Harris himself.
