Description

Bright red-orange ripples, sparkling iridescence, and complex patterned murrine abut rings of glass powder atop a grid of gray tiles seamed with black mortar. In contrast with the glossy smoothness of the rest of the bowl, the rings have irregular edges, thick rims, and stand off the surface to make the piece very tactile. You'll want to run your fingers over them every time you walk by.

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, cold worked, and slumped with a gentle rise in the middle.
