Art Glass Sculpture(ID: A93514)
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.
Crisp details and vibrant colors are hallmarks of Patchen's work - the result of his technical and creative mastery. This one-of-a-kind piece features murrini created from thousands of threads of gold over white tubes and emerald over white tubes outlined by hyacinth threads. This substantial sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in thick clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
