Bigfoot Track Art Marble by Polly Toombs created the murrini first by shaping glass into a footprint and pulling it into a long cane causing the picture inside to become small then chipped it into little slices and used them to make marbles.

I have been very fortunate to learn from leaders in the industry as well as incredible artists I had never heard of before, but will never forget.
I spend most of my time doing torchwork now. It’s the immediate gratification of playing with the glass and the ability to manipulate it that still blows my mind. Marbles, sculptures and, now, working on a glass lathe keep me highly entertained and busy as well.
I do still love making stained glass pieces, and the juxtaposition of light and color will never become boring to me. I am happy to share my knowledge and spread the joy of glass arts!!!!
