A collection of objects that combines the fine cut glass techniques special to Bohemian glass with
ancient production method for sheet glass in which glass blown in a cylinder is cut away, opened up
and flattened. We reheated a variety of objects already decorated with traditional cut glass patterns,
then sliced them open and reattached them to each other to create one large object.
As a manner of making, the process was like sewing together animal hides, or piecing together small
fragments of cloth to create a great patchwork quilt.
