A specific type of murrini with a flower-like, radially symmetrical pattern. The name means "a thousand flowers" in Italian. Similar to neriage; a traditional technique in glass and clay where several, or many, slabs of color are combined in patterns, drawings, or shapes and cut through in cross section to make many smaller ones.
