Pretty cool for sure.
Although I don't understand why it was a roman cup that inspired him. Dichroic glass (sometimes simply called "dichro" in the lampworking world)
has been used in glassware up until today. Hippies have been making "tobacco pipes" with dichro for years.
My point is, you think someone working with optics would be familiar with a common type of glass and not have to be inspired from a roman cup.
It's like saying I built my house from concrete because I was inspired by a concrete roman structure. It would be more accurate to say I built my
house of concrete because it's known material that worked well for what I wanted.
