Uranium and Hyacinth Ellipse

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Patchen
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 "Ellipse" series is created using the challenging murrini technique. Patchen uses both hot and cold glassworking processes to create hundreds of highly-patterned glass tiles, composes them into a mosaic, then fuses them together and begins the blowing process.

This unique piece features murrini created with thousands of glass threads of hyacinth over white forming a matrix where islands of uranium, aquamarine, and white glass float and distort the views into and through this work. Sporadic black thread patterns provide accents. This sizable sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
