Lime and Aqua Glow 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 primarily created with transparent lime with white threads surrounded by a ring of aquamarine. With accents in cherry and purple threads, all of these patterns are outlined by an organic matrix of white glass that glows in the dark (see photo). This sizable sculpture has great presence and a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
