This sea green & gold cane cylinder is made via the incalmo process. Three elements were added (two) sea green with a gold cane in between.
Incalmo is a glass process that involves constructing an object, usually a vessel, by fusing in-situ two or more glass blown elements. This process was first practiced in the Islamic world during the Middle Ages. It demands great precision as the edges of the two elements must be precisely the same in diameter.
Cane is a color application where a thin rod of glass is made from various rods of glass of different colors to form a design. Cane ranges from simple to complex. A simple cane is basically a cylinder of colored glass coated with clear glass. There is also cased cane where the clear is coated with a color. Then with complex cane there are multiple designs, really only limited by the creator’s skill and imagination.
