Self-Taught Glassworker Creates Medieval Art Hidden In Glass Rods
Hundreds of pieces of colored glass are melted together in intricate patterns to create detailed scenes and portraits.
You may have made some millefiori masterpieces in Fimo clay as a kid, but one self-taught artist based in California is taking that craft to the next level. Loren Stump makes murines, rods of colored glass that are melted together in particular patterns. The surprise, as with a geode, comes when the glass is sliced open, revealing a scene constructed out of the glass rods that is often inspired by medieval art.
