Another smallish vase, in a decor that I have been trying to find for my collection. 4.5 inches tall. This decor is not easy to photograph. I tried using flash, but it washes it out, so I ended up using a photo taken on a bright overcast day without flash. It really doesn't show the iridescence very well, but it's the best I could do without having fancy lighting and a light box. Again, another little vase to fill in the empty spaces on my shelves.

    Did you see my posting of another flask-shaped aeolus vase? I used a combination of soft-natural (indirect) light and bounce-flash to get those pictures, and it IS difficult to show the true sparkle of the aeolus decor. I like your photo - it looks very natural.

    I've found that daylight shows the best natural colors, especially with iridescent glass. But with Aeolus, most of the surface is curved, so the light reflects off a narrow portion of each of the threads. It definitely needs light from more directions to set it off. I bet I could get the same effect if I set up some white boards to reflect the light from the sides or top. Something to experiment with.
