I love this new color application. I use fragments from other completed pieces and fuse them together as oddly shaped pieces of murrine. (In the last picture you will see the pieces of color and murrine that I used to make this piece.) The color combinations are extraordinary. It's a challenging process, however, since different colors expand and contract differently from one another. Consequently, some parts of the piece move more quickly or more easily than others. This piece has a round base that tapers to a straight top. The entire piece is slightly flatted. The base is cold-worked and ground to ensure stability. A bouquet of white flowers will accentuate the colors in the vase; a cluster of wild-flowers will create a bold, vibrant centerpiece. Height 7 1/2", Width 5 3/4", Opening 3 1/2", Weight 2 lb. 3 oz.
