Tapestry Piscine

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Patchen
Inspired by the streamlined denizens of the marine world, this blown glass sculpture from Patchen's Piscine series is low and sleek with great three-dimensional optics.

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.
