< Banas Casting Glass from Czech Republic >

My professor Keiko, brought in here set of Banas Glass Samples from Czech Republic to class and I was drawn "like a moth to a flame" to all these amazing colors. Apparently it's not just the wide variety of color and unique ones, this glass is lead free therefor lighter (when working with large glass castings, this means that there are significant savings overall). 
The Bright yellow Billet has Uranium (one of it's kind in the market) which reacts to ultraviolet light!!
I especially love the shadow that is casted with the light and hopefully soon I'll have some samples of my own!
