TECHNIQUE: 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 a rod called "cane", using a classic murrine technique. After cooling, cane is sliced into tiles of varying thicknesses, called murrine, revealing the pattern in cross-section. Multiple murrini from this cane are composed in a mold and cast in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees until fused into one piece. Finally, the piece is hand polished to highlight the intricacy of this unique piece, and paired with the perfect bail.
