Glasgow School of Art

I’ve already posted about the terrible loss caused by this ongoing fire at Glasgow School of Art. The Guardian has just posted this image and it hurts.

That finial (the bird above the globe), silhouetted in the flames was made by my great grandfather, Robert J. Smith.

It’s terrible to see such an important building destroyed, but, it’s just a building. It’s worse to think of the students whose final year degree show work may have been lost as a result, he deadline was/is today at 5pm.
