Philadelphia "Penn" Catch-allca_philadelphia_penn
Fused glass catch-all dishes featuring your favorite city landmarks - part of an ever growing series!
This catch-all features the William Penn statue on top of Philadelphia's City Hall. The bronze sculpture was by Alexander Milne Calder, and was built in 1901 commemorating the city's founder. Until the 1980s, it was the tallest building in Philadelphia, and it remains the tallest statue atop any building in the world. I printed the image in dark brown and white enamels onto opaque sky blue glass, with a coordinating strip of a transparent mix of white and clear, 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.
