Luce Center Quote

"I chose to work with the teapot form for three reasons. First, it had no glass tradition. Second, it was so un-macho compared to the prevailing "dip-n'-drip" school. Last, it had so many elements with which to mess around." Richard Marquis, University of Washington Press, 2003

Luce Center Label

The Teapot Goblets employ zanfirico, an Italian glass technique in which glass canes are twisted to form an intricate lattice. Richard Marquis brings his love of assemblage to his teapot forms, attaching single pieces of his trademark murrine to the surface.
