Dichroic Blue, Green, Purple Murrini Swirls Music Note Sculpture
5.375" tall x 2.5" wide x 1.675" deep
Inspired by the colors of the sea and using Murrini which is pulled from a hot kiln into long cylinder shaped cane and then cut up in pieces. The first step was to make a temporary mold of a music note, then to create the swirls of each color into a glass/design. that glass was then cut and designed into a pattern in the shape of a music note with dichroic glass added. The glass is then fired to cast into the mold. After that firing, I grinded smooth all the edges and then it was fire polished in the kiln. The music note is epoxied to a stand that was made by cutting three pieces for varying sizes and tack fusing them into the stand.
Making music notes was inspired while I was playing the piano. I was learning a new piece that was complex for me. The music notes were staring back at me. All of a sudden, I started thinking about the concept of a music note sculpture. I immediately went to my studio to test out the idea and continue to refine the design as well as creating various color patterns.
