Teal 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 patterned glass tiles, composes them into a mosaic, then fuses them together and begins the blowing process.

This unique piece features murrini made from precise white threads ringed by bronze all floating in a sea of teal glass. This piece is particularly distinctive as the white threads glow in the dark (see image). 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. For extra security, Museum Wax or Gel provides a very firm hold.
