Mixed Murrini Resistenza

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Patchen
From Patchen's 'Resistenza' series, this flattened vessel was created through the difficult technique called murrini, which involves making highly-patterned glass tiles, carefully composing hundreds of them into a mosaic, then fusing them together to construct a glass bubble all before and blowing the final shape.

This style of Resistenza is composed with a variety of murrini and cane (patterned rods of glass) that Patchen has created over a number of weeks. Since Patchen is always creating different murrini patterns, each Mixed Murrini Foglio is unique. This piece is large and double-encased in clear glass for great depth, optics and stability.

Each piece is unique. Exact coloration and patterning will vary.

All of Patchen's pieces have flat satin-finished bases. While Museum Wax is recommended for added security, for ultimate stability, this piece may be purchased with a permanently bonded clear glass base. Optional base is 5" x 5".
