Aqua, Gold, and Hyacinth Foglio

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Patchen
Masterful and breathtaking, this blown glass vessel is created using the technically demanding murrini technique. Patchen creates dozens of patterned glass tiles and composes them into a mosaic, fuses them, and begins the blowing process. He switches the hot glass pattern from one blow pipe to another to create the flower-like patterns.

This foglio is composed of murrini with bands of transparent hyacinth and gold around a center of aquamarine. Fine white borders frame the patterns throughout. This piece has a flattened profile and is double-encased in clear glass for great depth, optics, and stability.

All of Patchen's pieces have flat satin-finished bases. While Museum Wax is recommended for added security, for ultimate stability, this piece may be purchased with a permanently bonded clear glass base. Optional base is 5" x 5".
