Dec 2016 Murrini Style #s 1, 10, 11, 13, 14, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. December 2016 murrini were made by dipping into fresh pots of Triton and Skylla, adding various combinitions of cane pickups (Melia, Psyche, Euros, Zephyr, Luna 3 and/or Skylla) and rolling some in Khaos powder.
6″ canes, 4-7 mm in diameter.Each murrini contains both striking and reduction colors.
