TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this glass pendant 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 a cane, using a classic murrine technique. After cooling, the cane is sliced into varying thicknesses, revealing the pattern in it's cross-section. A slice from this cane, called a murrine, is then shaped and fire polished to create a one of a kind piece paired with the perfect bail.
