“Marquis began the technical groundwork for his pieces in 1969, when he was a Fulbright-Hayes fellow at Venini Fabbrica, an art-glass shop on the Venetian island of Murano, Italy. There he began using murrini, pencil-thin cylindrical glass canes that are embedded with a pattern and are used to create the bits of colored glass found in paperweights. The technique of picking up these bits of glass cane and blowing them into vessel forms was invented by 15th-century Italian glassmakers and introduced to the United States by Marquis. Marquis has mastered this complex technique and, consequently, has the respect of the glass-art community. But instead of exclusively creating scads of beautiful, well-crafted vessels, he also assembles wacky combinations of found and fabricated objects, including the large pyramid of second-hand bowling balls on the grounds of his home and studio.”
