Welcome to the Art of Susan Gott


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.

About the Artist


Susan Gott has worked in glass for 30 years and specializes in cast glass to create one-of-a-kind sculptures. She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in glass from Kent State University; Bachelor’s from Radford University and studied glass at Pilchuck, Haystack, Arrowmont, Penland Schools. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including an American Craft Council Award of Excellence, Individual Artist Fellowship and New Forms Florida as well as Best of Show and First Place in many exhibitions.


About the Process


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.
