TECHNIQUE: This limited edition kiln formed glass pendant incorporates multi generational hand pulled murrini and fusing to create a one of a kind patterned piece.
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 cane, using the classic murrine technique. Once cool, this cane is chopped into sections and bundled together. This is melted again in the hot shop and pulled into a multi-generation cane. The cane is sliced into varying thicknesses, called murrine, revealing the pattern in cross-section. Murrine from this cane is cast in a mold and fired in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees. Finally, this is carved into shape, tumbled for weeks, and fire polished to give it a uniquely soft luster.
