San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Murrini Cane by Kevin O'Grady

Here is an amazing murrini cane project I photographed for glass artist Kevin O'Grady. His borosilicate glass cane depicts the historic mission, San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, in Carmel, California.
Kevin put together the finished cane from his various original cane components, handmixing the color of each component himself. The completed murrini measures 2.25" across, and Kevin then pulls this cane down to a usable size to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. He has logged several hundred hours into creating this particular mission cane, and has made it his goal to depict all 21 historic Spanish Missions along the coast of California.
