Let me introduce you to David Patchen’s work.  There are many amazing hand-blown glass artists out there, but David’s work is definitely up a few notchs.  Here is how David Patchen describes his technique: my current work is an intensive exploration of detailed patterns, colors and transparency created through multi-layered cane and murrine—colored rods and patterned cross-sections of glass. Here are some snap shots of how the magic takes place:

Before any glass is blown, David composes the piece by designing a mosaic of cane (rods of colored glass) and murrine (cross-sections of patterned glass) that he had made previously. This design is carefully arranged on a ceramic plate for heating in a furnace.

The complexity and delicate design of David Patchen’s work are the results of the multi-stage process, thoughtful creativity and precise execution.

The result of this process is a piece of art with so much detail that it boggles your mind.
