The sculptural glass of Susan Gott embodies an interest in mythological imagery, symbolism, and traditions from ancient cultures. The artist studies these symbols and philosophies to develop ideas and create a new mythos, using glass as a sculptural medium. Ancient people recognized the cycles of life, of the moon, crops, and seasons through rituals such as making art, storytelling and dancing.
Through drawing and visual abstraction, Susan is able to find new meaning, develop a vision and explore new directions. The unfolding of the imagery and the creation of this art work embraces the essence of the feminine and the creative process becomes her ritual. The resulting sculptures in glass are a visual representation of the cycles of life. These investigations have opened new sources of inspiration for Susan’s work and strengthened a connection between her art and that which is timeless.
