No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Black Glass
« on: August 15, 2005, 10:19:15 AM »
Moved from another thread, I thought I'd show my (BIG) 'black' glass bowl http://tinypic.com/akwdgm.jpg (and yes, that's a BIG candle in it!)

Here's one taken with flash http://tinypic.com/akwfbk.jpg

And to prove the colour you can just detect in the flash pic, here's one with a light inside it http://tinypic.com/akwfnb.jpg

If you want to know the chemical composition of the glass, ask Adam A - he made the bowl!   :D

Mod note - so whatever it was, it was Sowerby? :chky:
