Threads of black glass, scattered over creamy vanilla, one segment shining with iridescence, set the tempo for the symphony. Look into the edge, and you can look under the black glass threads!
You can’t help but touch the three-dimensional wafers of powdered glass, marching in time over a grid of floating lines.
Segments of patterned glass cane sport swirling half-circles and juicy yellow centers. Others contain complex patterns of creamy lines in their centers. Along the rim, you can look into the middle of the cane.

On the back, strands of black glass are scattered. There’s something new to see every time you look at the composition.
The glass cylinders in this bowl are sections individually cut from hand-pulled glass cane, which I create by heating glass to 1500 degrees and pulling it into rods while molten in a modern-day adaptation of the 16th century techniques of the Murano glassmakers.
Fused, coldworked, and slumped with a gentle swell in the middle.
