TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as alternating strips of colored sheet glass fused into a panel. This panel is then skillfully reheated to a molten state in a "hot shop" and rolled up onto a blow pipe, to be shaped and pulled into a rod called "cane", using a classic murrini technique. After cooling, cane is chopped into sections and bundled together forming a pattern bar. This is melted again in the hot shop and pulled into a multi-generation cane. The cane is sliced into varying thicknesses, called murrini, revealing the new multiplied pattern in cross-section. Then these murrini are arranged in a mold and melted into one piece in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees. Finally, this piece is shaped and hand polished to give it a uniquely soft satin luster.
