DESCRIPTION

Giles Bettison is a master glass artist from Adelaide, SA, Australia. He has evolved the ancient Venetian technique called "Murrini" or mosaic glass to construct patterned sheets from colored glass canes. He cuts and combines these sheets to build his luminous vessels piece by piece. Bettison is known worldwide for his pioneering efforts using the “Murrini technique.” His work is incredibly unique, combining old and new technology to create some of the finest glass available today.
