Murrine Glass

Murrina is an Italian term for coloured patterns or images made as a glass cane (long rods of glass) the pattern is revealed when cut in cross-sections. Murrine can be made in infinite designs.

When cool, the rod is sliced into cross-sections of desired thickness with each slice possessing the same pattern in cross-section. Capitalizing on the ways glass can be arranged, it then flows from a crucible. You can create reproducible decorative canes and intricate murrine using the Vitrigraph Kiln. These elements can then immediately, be used in other kiln-glass project

These Murrine will then be fused into a blank that will ultimately be used to explore the Dropout methods of slumping glass in the kiln.
