Philip Jacobs Art Glass

Does anyone know this glass artist, I think he is Australian? This 29.5cm plate with 12.5cm slumped centered bowl is 9.5cm deep. Made by a Philip Jacobs it has a label and an engraved signature to identify it. Philip Jacobs from Earth & Fire in the US says that is not his signature or piece so I would appreciate any help with identification.
