TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as sheet glass cut into strips and fused together into a patterned bar in a kiln This bar is picked up on a blowpipe in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop.” The glass is reheated until its molten hot and is then stretched and pulled into a rod called "cane", using a classic murrine technique. The cane is sliced into tiles called murrine revealing the pattern in cross-section. Multiple murrini from this cane are cast in a mold and fired in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees until fully fused into one piece. Finally, the piece is carved by hand, tumbled for weeks, and fire polished to highlight the beauty and intricacy of this unique piece.
