Posted by Dave Strobel on 2/3/2007
Thank you for taking time to look at my gallery. To say working with glass is a passion is an understatement. Glassblowing is what I am... not what I do.
Any comments are appreciated, and thanks again for your interest.

40 Murrine by Strobel

40 Murrine by Strobel

A large cluster of random murrine from the last couple of years. Sorry for the lighting, i'll put better pics up soon. I'm still compiling the chips of the 1000+ murrini i've made over the years for one large pic, i'll post it when it's finshed.
Thanks for looking at my gallery!

Lion of Juda murrine by Strobel

Lion of Juda murrine by Strobel

I dont normally post individual murrine, but this one I think deserves it. Most murrine take me a day or two to make, this one took five full days. The lion in the flag is the same one that's in the chip next to it.
An afterthought: I owe big props to Mike Warren for his first lion way back in 98? I was moved by his work so much, I started making murrine the next month.
PROPS TO OLDSCHOOL!

New Wig Wag Paperweights

New Wig Wag Paperweights

A combination of new school flameworking technique with old school paperweight shape. No murrini, but an idea I had to pursue anyway. All are about 3" diameter, and have a single facet on top.

Ocean Crystals - Murrini paperweights by Strobel

Ocean Crystals - Murrini paperweights by Strobel

A few peices from a series of paperweights shaped like crystals - '02- '04. All are completely solid, flameworked boro (no coldwork.) Size varies, but most were 5-7" tall, with a 2-3" diameter. As with the tiles, a dichroic background. Most had about 100 included murrini.

My name is Dave Strobel, I've been blowing glass since 1991. I started with softglass hotshop work for a year, then moved into borosilicate scientific fabrication and repair for a few years, moving into boro artglass exclusively in 1995. The past six years have been spent with a very high emphasis on boro murrini; both making and using them.
I now live in the SF Bay area making boro murrini for distributors, businesses, and artists. I also have an extensive line of paperweights, tiles, and marbles that I make in my spare time. My new website will be up soon. Until then, send questions to my temporary email.
Thank you for everyone's interest and support over the years!
Thank you all for your feedback- both positive and negative is always appreciated.
