Making Murrini

I am having so much fun making murrini canes! Here are some progress shots. They are layers and layers of glass, heated up then pulled out very slowly to make a long cane. When the cane cools down I cut it into little chips to add to beads. It’s quite a magical process and lots of fun to pick the colours for each one. I am planning to use the beads in an upcoming exhibition. Exploring the idea of layers, these murrini seem to fit the theme well.
