My recent series of murrini vessels is called Bargello. This body of work, glass is an exploration of patterns inspired by Florentine textiles. This Florentine embroidery is loosely referred to as Bargello style. The style typically has bold color and strong graphics. These patterns are both retro and contemporary. I use the murrini to embellish the surface and create shapes that balance the complexity of pattern with clean and minimalistic lines. The shapes are very intentional and illustrate my interest in design and the craftsmanship of execution.
