A selection from the artist's Colorcane Murrine Series. These shallow vessels include hundreds of handmade murrine, each containing several layers of transparent and opaque orange colored glass. The process includes pulling cane from a special kiln called a "vitrigraph". After cooling, the cane is manually cut into individual murrine. The murrine is then arranged, fired together, cold worked and then fired once again to produce the final piece. 

- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
