Fused Murrine/Water-Jet Cut Sheet Glass
Lace encapsulates the opposing properties that are unique to glass, fragility and strength. These qualities are translated through these intricate glass structures that hold reference to domesticity, femininity and patience.
Simulating the qualities of woven textile, each lace panel is assembled from thin glass rods (cane) cut into round discs (murrini), which are fused in a kiln and laminated onto water-jet cut sheet glass. Each individual piece of murrini differs in size and thickness, altering the density of light as it is transmitted through the lace, like that of a prism.
