HandmadeMN Giveaway - Gotthold Glass Studio

By Michelle of Evie's Tool Emporium

Congratulations to our latest giveaway winner! Thanks to all who entered and we wish you good luck with this week's giveaway!

Today we bring you this gorgeous petite fused glass pendant from Michelle of Gotthold Glass Studio!


Petite Fused Glass Pendant

This petite fused glass pendant reminds me of a sunrise! Wisps of pink with a hint of tangerine swirl on a white background in this vibrant piece. This pendant has a lot of visual depth -- the colors are not just on the surface of the pendant, but mixed throughout.

This piece is truly one of a kind, as it's made from a high firing process known as a potmelt. To do this, Michelle places pieces of glass in a flowerpot which she then heats in her kiln until the glass gets so hot that it flows out the hole in the bottom of the pot. The designs and colors of the resulting glass disk are quite unpredictable! Michelle then carefully chooses the most interesting areas of the melt to turn into pendants.

Measurements:
width: 15 mm
height: 25 mm(with bail)
thickness: 7 mm
