Just recently the cable program How It Is Made had a section of the show dedicated to glass blowing. They had a Canadian pair of
artists showing the process of making Murano styled glass. The process actually originated in Babylon but the Italian glassmakers
of the medieval period found out how to make it. It is an arduous process of making thin glass rods then cutting them to length,
some of which are twisted into spiral multicolored rods. Then the artist lines the rods up and then joins them around a vase or pot.
The twisting and remelting continues until the desired glass object is made. The resulting piece is often times very thick and bubbles
are very common within the glass.
Lena takes shards of broken Murano glass and crafts them into Zuni fetishes. In this case she has created a large eagle from a heavy
piece of yellow, red, blue, white and clear glass weighing in at 4.1 ounces! The eyes are inlaid of red coral. As is typical more often than
not of the artist and family, the fetish is unsigned.
