TECHNIQUE: This limited edition 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 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 the classic murrine technique. The 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 fused into one piece. Once cool, this is carved into shape, tumbled for weeks, and fire polished to give it a uniquely soft luster.
