I was thinking about glass today. What an amazing thing has been created from silicone, soda ash, lime and what else? I wonder how it was first discovered.
I also wonder at its similarity to clear quartz crystal, how it holds and plays with light. What a concept... solid yet transparent. Wondrous!


  1. Glass is a wonder - sand is one of the main ingredients, so rough and dense - transformed in the fiery furnace to smooth clarity as the silicon in each grain melts freely together. Glass looks cool and clear but it comes from earth and fire.

  2. So true. And that earth is your special medium!
