More Information

This hot blown sculpture starts with a bubble of clear glass. Days before, the needed “cane” was made and sliced into pieces called “murrini”.

The murrini are heated until they are red hot and “picked up” on the bubble of glass. The artist positions them so all the edges meet, reheating as needed and then proceeds to sculpt the shape of the piece.

It is these more difficult and unusual “filament” murrini that create the sense that the clear glass is “sewn” together.

Ben Tullman frequently uses striking colors and creative patterns in his fine art glass sculptures. Furthermore, he has mastered the creative and modern use of murrini and cane. Often, Tullman produces large scale glass sculptures made with exquisite patterns.  However, Tullman’s glass artwork has a sense of whimsy that belies the complexity and control required.

Ben was featured at SOFA Chicago 2017.
