Description

Blown glass tumblers with murrine.  Murrine are colored images made in a glass cane that are revealed when the cane is cut into thin cross-sections.  Artist Loretta Forde scatters pieces of murrine on a marver (steel table) which she picks up on the surface of a partially-blown glass bubble. Further blowing, heating, and shaping on the marver incorporates the murrine completely into the bubble, creating a random arrangement of murrine in the vessel.

  • Approximately 4.5″tall x 3″wide
  • Each piece is unique, expect slight differences
  • Sold individually
  • Made in NC
