Articles of interest from our sister blog

As many of our regular readers know, I started a “sister blog” a few months ago, dealing with my exploration of the intersection of art from the past and art from the present, and specifically how this impacts my own work as an artist. As so much of my work is impacted by art from the distant past, I thought it worth sharing some of my posts from the other blog site. Comments welcome:

Ancient Flame Worked & Rod Formed Glass Objects

Not all ancient Roman glass was blown glass. Using techniques much like today’s studio glass flame working or bead making, Roman artisans created a wide range of small objects, including beads, amulets, miniature vessels, jewelry inserts, bangles, gaming pieces for board games, just to name a few. Many mostly Roman but also pre-Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic, may be found on the ancient glass pages on our website. A few images are included here. Here are  links –
