Welcome to the Art of Susan Gott

calendar-wheel-gott-glass

My work embodies an interest in mythological imagery, symbolism, and philosophies from historic and ancient cultures. I love to travel and I am intensely interested in ancient civilizations, symbols of ritual art, ancient myths and how they connect us, most deeply, with our own nature and our place in this world. The resulting glass, with primitive qualities and metaphors, are a visual re—presentation of the cycles of life. The archetypal images that emerge explore spirituality, existence, humor, love, magic, dualities and the beauty of life.

Special Announcement

I am currently spearheading a new public art project for the The Green ARTery - Perimeter Trail along the Hillsborough River through the urban neighborhoods of Tampa, Florida and am seeking monetary donations & assistance from discerning art lovers to help fund the creation of a series of Glass Art / Terrazzo Benches, which will provide Public Seating along a 22 mile nature loop trail through the historic heart of the city.

The GreenARTery is a grassroots organization that works with public and private sector organizations and neighborhood communities to connect the Hillsborough River community green spaces and parks to existing greenways and trails systems appropriate for all ages and abilities.

About the Process

process250

The casting process is intense and involves ladling the molten glass directly from the furnace at 2300° F. Timing, temperature and the casting team all have to work together with absolute accuracy to create each piece. Gott frequently works with a rigid sand mold technique, for it allows detail and the ability to work on a large scale. 

The interior images, symbols, inclusions and color are manipulated into the glass before it cools.
