TECHNIQUE: This one of a kind kiln-formed glass pendant incorporates hand-pulled murrini 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.” The molten hot glass is rolled up onto a blowpipe and shaped, stretched and pulled into a rod called cane, using a classic murrine technique. This cane is sliced into tiles called murrine revealing the pattern in cross-section. Multiple murrini from this cane are cast in a mold and fired in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees until melted into one piece. Finally, this is carved by hand and polished to highlight the intricacy of this unique piece.
