Item No. 1976
Murrini is an Italian term for colored patterns or images made in a long rods of glass cane.
The process first appeared in Mesopotamia more than 4,000 years ago and was revived by Venetian glass makers on the island of Murano in the early 16th century.
The time required to create cane in the studio before incorporating it into a design is significant and the pieces that result command a very high price.
Our new cane mortar is the result of a series of experiments that enabled us to create the look and depth of cane worked glass without spending half a day working up a design.
This new mortar bowl has the depth and luminosity of cane glass but without the price tag that makes the technique inaccessible to most people.
The design can be purchased with an engravable marble base or as a stand alone bowl at a price anyone can afford.
