Roman-era glass

EXHIBITION: Met Museum Exhibit Features Ancient Roman Glass on Loan from Israel (The Jewish Voice).
In the early first century A.D. the most outstanding examples of Roman mold-blown glass were made by a craftsman called Ennion, and products of his workshop are the focus of the exhibition Ennion: Master of Roman Glass, opening December 9 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is the first exhibition of ancient glass organized by the Metropolitan, which has one of the finest collections of this material in the world.
