When you hear the term "glass bread loaves" your first reaction might be "ouch." But Loren Stump, an amazing artist from California, creates unique glass loaves which only reveal the image contained within when you cut a slice.
They really are incredible.
His artwork is created from painstakingly layered glass rods which Loren calls a "murrine".
This piece, "Madonna of the Rocks" is considered his greatest work.
The murrini image is only visible once the piece is cut. The effect is stunning.
