Cerulean & Gold Thread Foglio

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Patchen
Rated 5 based on 1 customer reviews
Crisp details and vibrant colors are hallmarks of Patchen's work—the result of his technical and creative mastery.

This spectacular blown glass vessel from the artist's "Foglio Series" is created using the challenging murrini technique. Patchen uses both hot and cold glassworking processes to create hundreds of patterned glass tiles, composes them into a mosaic, then fuses them together and begins the blowing process.

This unique piece features murrini with thousands of precise gold threads ringed by transparent purple and set in a saturated field of cerulean blue. This sizable sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.

All of Patchen's pieces are stable with gently flared, satin-finished bottoms. For extra security, Museum Wax or Gel provides a very firm hold. For earthquake-prone, marine, or public spaces, this piece may be purchased permanently bonded to a clear (Starphire) glass base. Optional base is .75"H, 5"SQ.
