Checkered Murrini Vase

Art Glass Vase

Created by David Jacobson
Intensely patterned and rich with movement, this glass vase is made entirely of 4-color murrini. The individual colors are combined and fused into a single rod before being cooled and cut, revealing the pattern contained within.

The tiles are arranged into the desired design and kiln fused to create a single sheet before being rolled and manipulated on the blowpipe.

Each color reacts differently to the heat, moving and inflating at different rates, resulting in an uneven texture that encourages the viewer to explore the surface.
