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 ball. Further heating, and shaping on the marver incorporates the murrine completely into the glass, creating a random arrangement of murrine.
