“Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.
"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"
La Belle Dame sans Merci [The Beautiful Lady without Mercy] (1926), Frank Cadogan Cowper
And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.
I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’
John Keats, 1819
