Duality in Opal Green is a fused and sculpted glass artwork by the Austrian artist, Sandra A. Fuchs. The dimensions above are for the glass panel and Zebrano wood base. 

Fuch's signature fused panels have an inner life which is captured in dense and complex patterns which are formed from many unique pieces of ‘murrine’, which Fuchs designs and makes by herself. Traditionally ‘murrine’ all possess the same pattern, however by employing a different making technique, Fuchs makes each ‘murrina’ unique by having more control during the stretching process whilst working with her hot molten glass.

Combining this new special manufacturing technique of 'kilnformed murrine’, which has only been in existence since 1992, with centuries old traditional Muranese glassblowing knowledge, Fuchs’ art works are the only ones of their kind worldwide.

In the artist’s own words;

"Offering me every possible way to express myself, glass became my ‘partner in crime’ to transform my ideas in reality. To mix my own colours is very important for me. Colours are feelings, colours show the mood of a work at first glance. Colours are life”
