One of my favorite types of glass is cobalt blue glass. The blue is dark yet vibrant with a hint of purple. Cobalt Blue glass is found in wine bottles, goblets, dining ware, and sun catchers just to name a few. With this lense I will be presenting cobalt glass from various sources. My aim is to inspire people so that new and interesting cobalt blue creations can be made.
