Pulling Murrine

Pulling Murrine

After Layering Colors, We Heat and Pull

So Joey from Martha's Vineyard Glassworks visited the studio today and just as I was about to make a large murrine pull he whipped out his iPhone and shot this short video.  The glass I'm hanging up on the pully system is layers upon layers of colors that I stretch into 8' or so of patterned rod.  A few days from now after it's cooled, it will be cut into slices and the cross sections will have the pattern I designed.  More info about how murrine is made in the In the Studio section on "Making Murrine"
