Cerulean and Gold Foglio

Art Glass Vessel

Created by David Patchen
From Patchen's Foglio series, this flattened vessel was created through the difficult technique called murrini, which involves making highly-patterned glass ''tiles', carefully composing hundreds of them into a mosaic, then fusing them together to construct a glass bubble all before blowing the final shape. This one-of-a-kind Foglio is composed with murrine that Patchen has created, then assembled into a mosaic. With a palette of cerulean, white, and gold topaz, this Foglio has a bold pattern that subtly shifts from one side of the piece to the other. This Foglio is large and double-encased in clear glass for great depth, optics, and stability.
