Ikushima Harumi

Glassmaker Ikushima Harumi specializes in the elaborate Italian glass making technique known as murrine, which is used to create this footed cup. The murrine process begins by creating a fused bundle of colored glass into a design and stretching it into a cane. The cane is cut crosswise to reveal the design and these pieces are called murrine. The murrine are then arranged into a mosaic, fused into a tile, and picked up with a molten glass collar and blown into a cup.
