Next project Cloisonné White Peony Desk Previous project Murrina Console

Revisiting his roots as a jeweller and silversmith, in this exhibition Marc explored increasingly rare decorative techniques at an unconventionally large, even unprecedented, scale. For the Murrina works (2017), Marc utilises an intricate classical glass-making technique to create streamlined desks, tables, and consoles. Their sloping and bevelled planes are unified beneath pulsing fields of repeated cell-like spots on vivid coloured grounds, made by fusing glass rods together and then slicing them to reveal patterned cross-sections.

Murrina Desk is an Edition of 3 plus 2APs
