TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as sheet glass cut into strips and fused into a patterned bar in a kiln This bar is picked up on a blowpipe in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop.” The glass is reheated until its molten hot and is then stretched and pulled into a rod called "cane", using a classic murrine 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 by hand, then tumbled for weeks and fire polished to highlight the intricacy of this unique pendant.
