The Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum has an extensive collection of ancient glass objects. Recently, I have photographed a large number of these objects. Shown here are a few images I captured of ancient glass vessels, many of which are Roman. The glass collection has been one of my favorite to photograph, as the different shapes, colors, and iridescent overlays are so beautiful!
