PhotoHunter: glass

My offerings for this week could almost be considered to be on a scale from the profane, through secular, to the sacred.

round glass jug

My favourite jug, made by Cristal de Sèvres.


glass calculator

A very old glass calculator, never used. I don't know where it came from but I love it's chunky shape and the reflections when the sun shines through it on the windowsill.
