Our collection of ancient glass fragments received the star treatment! These small fragments were transferred from storage and brought to our photography room to be photo-documented.
Ancient glass was made in many parts of the ancient world, including Egypt, Greece, and Rome, and used for both utilitarian and decorative purposes. The process to manufacture the glass seen in the images below was very laborious and required skillful hands. Although the objects in these images are only fragments of what would have been a larger, intact glass object, their intricate mosaic and ribbon details and vibrant colors are still mesmerizing.
