This paper outlines experimental work relating to the creation of murrini using a combination of waterjet cutting and ‘hot-glass’ techniques. Murrini are traditionally created in the hot-shop from canes of coloured glass arranged to create patterns that are revealed when cut through in cross section (akin to Brighton Rock). The paper introduces the work of Professor Cutler in her role as facilitator for artist Scott Chaseling; as well as Doolan’s independent creative experimental work and cutting on behalf of artist Owen Johnson.
