TECHNIQUE: This shattered style recycled glass jewelry piece is made from the fragments, chips, and slivers of glass that break off during the process of chopping murrini. What would typically be swept away from underneath a chopper is carefully sorted, cleaned and recast in a kiln. Murrini comes from a glass rod called “cane” with with a pattern running through its length. The cane is cut into varying thicknesses, revealing the pattern in cross-section. When chopping murrini there are always broken bits that show parts of the pattern distorted. These pieces are fused into pieces of glass jewelry, and are ready to grind and polish by hand to highlight the intricacy of this unique piece.
