TECHNIQUE: This shattered series, kiln formed glass pendant incorporates recycled hand pulled murrini glass and fusing to create a one of a kind patterned piece.

Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as 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 murrini technique. This cane is chopped into pieces called murrini revealing the pattern in cross-section.

This pendant combines the fragments, chips, and slivers of glass that break off during the process of chopping murrini. What would typically be discarded is carefully sorted, cleaned and melted together in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees. Finally this newly cast piece is shaped and polished by hand to highlight the intricacy of this unique pendant.
