I like glass.
Always did.
I have a couple hundred vintage glasses in our kitchen windows
on glass shelving serving as 'curtains'.

So at the shop I have glassware from crystal, pyrex, 
old milk bottles, pop/soda bottles, drinking glasses,
depression glass, carnival glass, glass plates,
glass baking bowls, glass light fixtures, glass lamps,
I think you get the point!!

Most glass is made up of silica (sand),
an alkali like soda or potash, a stabilizer like lime,
and cullet (waste glass) to aid in the melting process.

There! More than you ever imagined you'd ever know, 
or want to know, about the composition of glass.

Glass is fun to photograph as well.
The light has a ball with it creating all sorts of possibilities. 

I really like this water pitcher set with its red flowers.
And note, which you really can't see all that well here,
in the upper background is the ocean
from whence this glass came.
