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 murrine used in this marble was made by various artists and was skillfully assembled by Betty into an amazing scene. -featuring happy, dancing bears in a garden of amanita mushrooms,butterfly and flowers with a Rainbow of Dichroic Glass in the background.
There's also a "steal your face" murrini on the back of this marble.
