3 days work just to make the lattichinio rondels with triangle murrine arranged on a roll-up plate called a ferro, heated, picked up and mouth blown, finished with a blue incalmo top. This piece was worked on the blowing iron for over 3 hours continuously and is the most difficult piece I have made to date.
Artist statement regarding the artwork,
As a child I could never make the Spyrograph pen patterns form perfectly, working with glass I make these lattichinio rondels with great precision.
