    As long as I have been a member of the Micro 4/3 User Group I have never started a thread, and I thought it's time I started one. Seeing that our hobby is fairly expensive and generally male dominated. I'm sure some of our better halves also have hobbies, some of which might collect old glass, depression glass, basically what I call Art Glass. So members try and convince your better half to let you photograph some of their Art Glass. I'll get it started with a couple of Old Vases. Lighting was terrible and I'm working on that.

    Nice, for a moment I thought that this was going to be about Sigma Art lenses.

    What causes the piece to glow is the Uranium Oxide in the glass. It is no longer used in the USA to make glass.
