Jewel in Disguise - The beauty of glass
It all began sitting innocently on a table near the window. The vase wouldn’t have been unusual except it was glowing like a gemstone. If you’ve never lived with colored glass I recommend you try it. You’ll love, love, love it! A vase becomes a chameleon, changing colors throughout the day.
Photographed below, in the early morning, as the sun hung low in the sky and slanted rays seeped through the window, the gold vase radiated a rich amber color, making it appear heavy and dense.
I became a bit anxious knowing the rising sun would soon shift, causing the color of the glass to change colors. Sure enough, by mid-day, the strong sunbeams sparkled on the golden vase. It glistened so intensely the frosted vase became almost clear.
By the time the sun set, the vase was wrapped in the darkness from outdoors. I swear the vase became ten shades darker and more haunting. It lurked among the other vase standing like a dark knight lost of all its radiating jewels.
So, if you can place a glass vase near a window I’d gallantly do it. Even a small glass bauble on a window sill will bring rainbows into your world.
