Project Description

The murrine or millefiori technique is one of the oldest and it offers vast possibilities. First you pull canes with an inside pattern. These canes get broken into small slices and, arranged to a bigger pattern, can be rolled up on a blowpipe to become blown and shaped further. I try to find new applications, at least new to me for the design of the murrine and the whole object. Here I would like to continue to practice. All shown Objects are exectued in mid size (ca. 35 cm height) which gives the patterns a "canvas" to unfold their beauty.

"a Murrine", 2008 until today, dimensions vary, glass, free blown, shaped, pulled, partly coldworked
