Jody Fine Marbles For Sale


Jody Fine is one of the original famous rat pack of marble makers from the Northern California area who got their start clear back in the 70's making contemporary art glass marbles. Jody's nickname is 'Captain Marble', being one of the earliest pioneers in marble making, perfecting the German techniques used in creating super colorful cane style marbles in the furnace. I can't imagine how many marbles Jody created over his almost 40 year career! He originally set up shop in the Berkeley, CA area before moving to other locations later. He sadly has shut down the furnace now and we won't see any more new work in his iconic style. It is the end of a wonderful era for cane style marble making, and his work is highly collectible now.

Jody is known for his bold thick color lines and multi-layered swirls and filigranas in his marbles, and even though he created so many marbles over the years, his style is very recognizable throughout. Jody didn't sign very many of his creations, typically only the larger, rarer and special pieces that he occasionally made. His murrini style marbles are some of the most rare and sought after amongst all of his creations, making up only a tiny percentage of all the work he did. One of the unusual and fun creations that he is most famous for are the slices of all glass 'Marble Pie' that he made, in which the 'berries' used are a nice double-layered batch of his smaller marbles. Each one came with its own pie platter and dome for display, magnificent marble history! Literally NO marble collection is complete without some Jody Fine in it, a standard bearer for the love of art glass marbles and the collecting of them!
