Murrine Vessels

Murrine work is an extremely labor intensive but rewarding process, often building a single element over days or weeks to create an articulated rhythm in the final composition.  Murrine are discs of glass made much like taffy; glass is repeatedly bundled, stretched, and sliced to create a detailed pattern.  A layer of murrine is then heated and formed into a sheet, rolled into a cylinder, and incorporated into the final piece.
