Remains of the Day, ECLPS-II
The process of murrine art glass incorporates mosaic techniques originated over 3,000 years ago. Robert developed his Colorbar Murrine Series by joining the hot glass technique perfected in 19th century Murano with today?s kilnforming process. Here glass is cut, arranged and placed in a kiln where it is heated until fused together, resulting in cane. The cane is cut into many small pieces, called millefiori or murrine. Each murrine is arranged by hand and fired together to produce the final piece. So not to waste unused murrine, this piece was assembled from 196 remaining bits & pieces of a larger project.
