For those of us that think glass sculpture is new...

Okay, I understand you could make a seriously good argument for design/decorative work here, not a true glass sculpture...This link is to an article published in Reuters, discussing the ewer, pictured at right, carved rock crystal, from the late 10th or early 11th century, as seen in this undated handout photo made available by Christie's in London on September 10, 2008. The 1,000-year-old ewer, one of only seven known surviving examples, will be offered for auction next month at Christie's Islamic art sale and is expected to fetch over 3 million pounds ($5.3 million).
