Hyacinth, Cerulean, and Gold Thread Foglio

Art Glass Vessel

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 Foglio 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 white threads covered in hyacinth, gold, and cerulean glass. Sporadic explosions of other thread patterns and clear windows are with views into and through the piece 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.
