TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as alternating strips of colored sheet glass fused into a panel. The panel is reheated in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop” and rolled onto a blow pipe. The molten hot glass is stretched and pulled into a rod called "cane", using a classic murrine technique. After cooling, cane is sliced into varying thicknesses, revealing the pattern in cross-section. A slice from this cane, called a murrine, is shaped by hand, tumbled for weeks, and fire polished to give it a uniquely soft satin luster
