Popelka Trenchard Fine Art Gallery is a working hot glass studio owned by nationally recognized artists Stephanie Trenchard and Jeremy Popelka. The gallery/studio is located in the heart of Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin and exhibits the artists' own accomplished techniques of glass cast sculpture and murrini blown glass. The murrain process, which involves layering molten glass colors on a steel rod and then stretching it into a long cane, is often characterized as a classic Italian concept from Murano Glass history. Its origins however predate this by thousands of years with examples common in Egyptian and other ancient Middle Eastern cultures.
For more than thirty years Jeremy Popelka has worked as a glass artist and educator. After exploring techniques with notable glass artists such as Dale Chihuly, Marvin Lipofsky, Bertil Vallien, and Joe Phillip Meyers, Popelka has mastered the widely different techniques used in art glass including blowing, sandcasting and Murrini in his Wisconsin hot glass studio.
The entire flower is 11" H with the flower portion being 6" H. The flower bends at the stem and measures 6.5" at the largest width from stem to edge of flower.
This looks lovely in a plant, a vase, or just laying on a shelf.
