I do not know if anyone else has experience this, I can feel Czech glass with my hands. I call it the 3 S's...soft, silky, and smooth. I am interested in learning of reference books and books with terms and glass making techniques to further my knowleadge. My two loves are riding my Harley and collecting Czech glass. When the sun is shining and I am riding my full dress Harley ...stopping at antique stores and find a nice piece of Czech glass marked at a price I can not pass up.............I am reminded how good God is and how HE smiles upon us!!!!! Oh, God is first and foremost my love!!!!! I AM BACK!!!! I have a little more knowledge, made a photo booth to shoot my pictures in and have added a few hundred pieces of glass to my collection!!!!! When asked at antique stories what I am looking for.... I reply "Just czeching it out" and they soon learn what I really mean!!!! (Read more)
