"Rainbow Back Twist" marble. Colorless, black and multi-colored glass; flameworked and hot-worked. Large marble with a black center and a rainbow twist of colors. This marble has a clear core, rolled in black powdered glass. Colored glass stripes were applied in the torch. It was then twisted between two steel punty rods, rounded, and dipped in the furnace for the final clear coating. It was then rounded using using both graphite and cherry wood molds.
