Mokume Battuto Red Sphere
These rare works of art are formed in many stages and layers. They draw inspiration from textile patterns and microscopic systems. Traditional methods of Muranese cane making and finish carving techniques are used. Folded cane made of solid color is stretched, cut, fused, shaped and blown. Each cane contains up to 30 different colors layered into paper thin strata. Days of carving in the coldshop with diamond wheels reveal juxtapositions between the hundreds of layers of color, in an affect that is unique to each piece.
