“Who was the first person who said, 'You know, I bet if we took some of this [sand] and mixed it with a little potash and heated it, we could make a material that would be solid and yet transparent. We could call it glass.' " - Bill Bryson

Thank you Ellie! What a wonderful collection!

Very clever and thoughtful! It made me think, potash and sand and heat. A fire in the desert, some ash from a previous fire, or that hot desert sun, is that possible? Maybe the first glass was an accident???

Some wonderful artists have turned it into a beautiful thing to behold.

Thanks much for including my Brody vase ;-)
