Surf and Turf Bowl

$700
Glittery green undulating murrine piers jut out into turquoise Caribbean waters populated with graphical pebbly blocks. Alternately, a cityscape of green skyscrapers reaches into a sky full of clocklike clouds. It all depends on your point of view.

Description

Size: 11.5″ diameter, 2″ tall

Construction: The murrine elements 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 murrine are melted together into a block exposing the cross-sections, which is then sliced up to expose the undulating insides of the cross-sections. The final work of art is the result of five firings.

Finding the right size stand can be a process of trial and error! To display your platter standing up, I recommend the 6″ size of this acrylic stand from The Container Store.
