These twelve glass points show a good cross section of James Howell's "art points." Several different types of glass are represented. The different materials were mixed together in different patterns then flaked into nicely shaped points. At least six of the points, including the three on the top row left side, are made from dichroic glass that has a metal oxide coating. The point at the left side bottom row is made from different pieces of fiber optic glass that was melted together. The copper colored point in the bottom row is made from chunks of copper gold stone glass, from China, that was melted together. The other points are made from various colors of Venetian glass, in the form of rods and plates that were melted together. The purple point in the bottom row is the longest. It measures 2 13/16 inches (7.1 cm).
