Michael Mortara (b. 1960)
Murinni Diamond, 2018
Laminated and cold worked glass.
Assisted by Chris and Myanna Lowry.

“If you had asked me in the closing days of high school what comes next, glass wouldn’t have been a blip on my radar. But the threads of Punahou glassblowing worked their ways, and here I am after almost 25 years as a glass artist. A lot of those threads came through my relationship with Hugh Jenkins, a relationship that evolved from student and teacher to friends, almost 45 years later. Punahou is an incredible engine of opportunity for its students.”
