This gorgeous glass plate is sure to be a conversation piece! This pretty, mid-century modern inspired, fused glass plate is white with a blue geometric murrine patterned stripe. It can be used as a display piece, or as a serving dish. It is food safe but should be hand washed.

TECHNIQUE: This piece features a combination of handmade murrine and pieces of colored sheet glass. Murrine refers to the pattern stripe in this piece as well as the technique used to make it.

Crafted over multiple firings, murrine begins as strips of colored sheet glass fused into a patterned panel. This panel is reheated in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop” and rolled onto a blowpipe. The molten hot glass is stretched and pulled into a rod called cane. This cane is chopped into pieces called murrine revealing the pattern in cross-section. The murrine pieces are arranged in a pattern and fused together with pieces of colored sheet glass in a kiln forming this plate .

After cooling, the edges of this piece are ground and polished by hand. Finally the glass is placed on top of a mold and heated just to the point where it “slumps” into the form of the mold.

DIMENSIONS: 6 3/4 inches x 5/8 inches
