This amazing marble was made by hand with molten glass. There were no prints, paints or stencils used. The images were created with large 'murrine cane' slices!
The Murrine cane technique is an old Italian technique but it has never been done like this before! The canes are made like sushi rolls and are stacked, and pulled into smaller canes, the images are actually on the end of the cane! The canes are then sliced and the images are Encased inside and added to the surface of the marble.
The murrini used in this marble was made by various artists and was skillfully assembled by Betty into an amazing scene. -featuring happy swimming fish with a vibrant, sparkling band of 'Rainbow' color dichroic in the background. There is also shimmering dichroic fish murrina swimming across the forefront of the scene.
This clear glass marble magnifies the tropical fish swimming in shimmering flecks of rainbow dichroic glass. The back of the marble has a beige stylized coral and a shark murrina.
