Artist Melts Hundreds Of Glass Rods Together And Slices Them To Reveal Intricate Portraits Within

Published 1 year ago

Self-taught Californian glass artist Loren Stump is particularly known for his mind-blowing glassworks called murine. These impressive artworks are made by melting rods of coloured glass together in particular patterns, forming something that eventually looks like a loaf of bread. These “loaves” of melted glasswork are then sliced just like bread, revealing intricate two-dimensional images that could not be seen otherwise.

See his most complex piece so far – Leonardo da Vinci’s “Virgin of the Rocks” – as well as his other glassworks on Stump’s website.
