Colorbar Murrine Series

The award winning Colorbar Murrine Series was developed by joining the hot glass technique perfected in Murano with the fused glass process, also known as “kilnforming”. As in any fused glass project, art glass specifically designed to be compatible during the firing process is thoughtfully selected. The art glass is cut, arranged and placed in a kiln where it is carefully heated to a temperature that causes the glass to melt, or fuse together. After the cooling process, or annealing, the result is creating glass bars. As practiced in Murano, the colorbars are eventually cut into many small pieces, called millefiori or murrine. Each murrine is meticulously arranged by hand and then fired together, cold worked and then fired again to produce the final piece.
