Aqua, Gold & Amethyst Resistenza
Art Glass Vessel
From Patchen's 'Resistenza' series, this flattened vessel was created through the difficult technique called murrini, which involves creating patterned glass tiles, carefully composing them into a mosaic, then fusing them together to construct a glass bubble all before blowing the final shape. This Resistenza is composed of murrini with bands of gold and amethyst around a center of aqua. Fine white borders frame the patterns throughout. This piece is and double-encased in clear glass for great depth, optics and stability.
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".
