Gray Thread Piscine
Art Glass Sculpture(ID: A93517)
Created using the challenging murrini technique, Patchen uses both hot and cold glassworking processes to create hundreds of patterned glass tiles made from glass threads, composes them into a mosaic, then fuses them together and begins the blowing process.
This one-of-a-kind piece features murrini created from a mosaic of thousands of threads of transparent grey over white with highlights in gold, tea and cherry threads. This substantial sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
