Art Glass Vase
The stripes on a zebra are referenced in this dark purple, yellow, and white blown glass vessel. This piece was created using a hybrid murrini technique. James Friedberg has integrated the classic murrini technique with the Japanese metal working technique called mokume gane. Mokume Gane is process of layering and shaping different types of metal to achieve wood grain patterns. When this metal working technique is combined with glass, wood grain patterns are achieved as well as other patterns that emerge which are wholly new. Glass brings new life with its colors and translucent nature to this ancient metal working technique.
Each piece is unique. Slight variations will occur.
