David Patchen - Creating the Hand-Blown Glass

Compose and Design

Before any glass is blown, I compose the piece by designing a mosaic of cane (rods of colored glass) and murrine (cross-sections of patterned glass) that I've made previously. This design is carefully arranged on a ceramic plate for heating in a furnace.
This is contemporary hand blown glass artist David Patchen in action in his studio creating unique blown glass art through Venetian-style multi-layered cane and murrine.
