Detroit "Spirit of Detroit" Catch-all

$ 27.50

Fused glass catch-all dishes featuring your favorite city landmarks - part of an ever growing series!

This catch-all features the Spirit of Detroit statue.  Considered the symbol of Detroit, the 26-foot statue sculpted by Marshall Fredericks in the 1950s depicts a seated man holding a sphere in one hand and a family group in the other. The statue's plaque reads, "Through the spirit of man is manifested in the family, the noblest human relationship."  I printed the image in green and gold on wispy white-clear glass, with a 1/4" coordinating strip of opaque green, then fused it in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. The piece was then cold worked on a glass saw and/or grinder, then returned to the kiln to slump into it's final shape.

It is screen printed, kiln formed glass, 4.5" square and slumped into a sushi-style mold making it about 3/4" high at the corners. Catch-alls are great for tossing your coins and keys into, hold rings and earrings, candles, soap, make cute appetizer plates, spoon rests or decorative accents. They are food safe and we recommend hand washing, though they can go in the dishwasher.

This design is part of a series and has other matching housewares!  It comes packed in colorful tissue and gift box, ready for wrapping. This particular design is made-to-order, please allow an additional 2-3 weeks to make and ship.
