'Lace 2010' murrini glass vessel

Sculptural blown glass vessel in clear glass incorporating white murrini, formed in the kiln and then shaped as a flattened trapezium shape. The lower third of the vessel is composed of two narrow bands of four-petalled flowers below a more open pattern of bursting stars. One side also incorporates bands of stylised Venetian architectural forms and is intersected by a densely patterned L-shape, reminiscent of a crocheted textile of light brown background. The remaining body of the vessel consists of a floating composition of larger round lace rosettes composed of white and cream-coloured murrinini, a few with brown centres.
