The intricate murrine in this bowl are handcrafted in extreme detail, with many layers of subtle color meticulously layered until they glow from within.
Taking inspiration from macro and microscopic designs, Joseph Enszo utilizes traditional Italian techniques, redesigned to emphasize the natural properties of glass under various physical forces. Enszo's aesthetic is a unique intersection of 3 components: Italian decorativeness, Eastern simplicity, and a reference to natural science.
The process begins with thousands of individual handmade murrine, which are laid out and fused into flat compositions, which in turn are cut on a water-cooled diamond saw, ground and smoothed with a wet belt sander, and sometimes sandblasted. Finally the piece goes back to the kiln for slumping, fire-polishing, and annealing.
