murrini
 n.— «“We’re pullin’ what’s called murrini,” Appleby said. The process entails pulling long pieces of glass which are cut and then fused together. Once the pieces of glass are cut into square shapes, they are arranged on a steel plate like a mosaic. The glass squares are heated and fused together in a sheet. The sheet is then rolled into a cylinder shape and closed off at the bottom. Another layer of glass is put over top and it is blown out to the desired shape.» —“Let the glass flow in Sussex” by Adam Donnelly Delaware Coast Press (Rehoboth) July 26, 2006.
