Daniel Trilli Marbles For Sale (Sold Out)


Although Daniel is sadly no longer with us, he is a legend in the borosilicate glass world. Daniel passed away in his early 20's on April 17, 2007. He was far too young and the world lost an amazing glass talent who had a wonderful love for life. Astoundingly, Daniel worked with a handicap, his left hand being only partially formed, and yet he was able to put incredible detail into tiny glass packages. Truly amazing. We lost a great one.

Daniel was FAR ahead of his time when it came to making marbles. At the time, in the early 2000's, NOBODY was doing dot stacking on marbles as detailed as Daniel was, and not just detailed, but incredibly precise. The control he had with the glass allowed him to coax amazing patterns on the surface, sometimes duplicating a pattern very closely, many times over, all around a marble, all precisely located as well. It was painstaking work, and frankly, few had the patience to do what Daniel did, and to this day, few have ever achieved the same level of controlled detail. However, that said, he inspired MANY artists, including some of the great ones you know, to follow in his footsteps of devoting countless hours to one marble, one dot of glass at a time, hundreds of times in a row. We are so grateful that Daniel was able to blaze new paths that others could follow, and he will always be remembered for this.

Below are some rare chances to own one of these precious works. You almost NEVER see these come up for sale any more - they are hoarded like gold!
