Gray Thread Foglio
Art Glass Vessel(ID: A93978)
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 threads of grey, gold, daffodil and cherry over white glass with random windows in aquamarine and lime. Tens of thousands of these precisely-spaced threads provide a fine texture that contrasts with the transparent windows. This sizable sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
All of Patchen's pieces are stable with gently flared, satin-finished bottoms. 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".
