Ancient Glass

Ancient Glass

This is part of a window showing mostly a yellow panel of ancient (renaissance era) glass-- likely hand made-- as seen in the palazzo Ducale , Urbino, Italy.

I was fascinated by these --to my modern eye--imperfections-- and made many, many attempts to capture then----a few worthies best seen Large!

The stains and marks make a great abstract and the framework finish's it all off.

Fascinating Jenn in what I guess shows how the making of glass has been perfected.
There is however a beauty in the imperfections in these panels.

Something different and very interesting.
At a previous house I had to replace a number of broken hand made panes - an expensive and time consuming business!
