Hint of Coral and Vanilla Fans Collection Bowl

Rose-like hand-pulled murrine encased in creamy vanilla are at the center of four graceful geometric fans. Floating blocks showcase the parchment-like layering of color, and the space between is suffused with the faintest coral orange-pink tint.



Size: 10.75" diameter, 2.75" tall

Construction: The murrine elements at the center of this bowl are sections individually cut from hand-pulled glass cane, which the artist creates by heating glass to 1500°F and pulling it into rods while molten in a modern-day adaptation of the 16th century techniques of the Murano glassmakers. The murrini are then melted together into a contiguous whole, which is cooled and then shaped on a lapidary wheel to make the neat square around which the bowl is built. The creamy zebra-esque stripes flow together in their own toasty trip through the kiln before being sawn and ground into precise rectangles. The final work of art is the result of five firings and is sandblasted for a matte, fingerprint-resistant finish.
