Description

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.

We make a range of items from beautiful functional work, to one of a kind pieces. Techniques vary from blown glass and solid work, to sandblasted, neon and fluorescent glass. Our production items include tumblers, vases, paperweights and seasonal ornaments. Our larger work includes decorative plates, bowls, lamps and unique plasma sculptures to round out our wide variety of work.
