Mosaic Foglio II
Art Glass Vessel
This exciting blown glass vessel from the artist's Foglio series is created using the challenging murrini technique. Patchen assembles hundreds of multicolored dots of glass into a mosaic, fuses them together in a furnace, attaches them to a blowpipe, then begins the blowing process. Vibrant colors and meticulous craftsmanship are hallmarks of Patchen's work—the result of his technical and creative mastery. This multicolored piece features murrini from over a dozen different colors, both transparent and opaque. This piece is bright and exciting with a sleek, flattened profile. It is double-encased in clear glass for depth, optics, and stability.
