2x Glass Pendant

The 2x Glass Pendant employs highly skilled techniques to explore material extremes and push conventional boundaries in the realm of glass blowing. To create the pendant, broken glass is incorporated into a free form glass bubble. The glass is then mouth blown and through a repetitive process of heating and hand molding, the once sharp shards of glass become blunt and sculpturally integrated into the form. The glass gather line–where the molten glass accumulates prior to being shaped–is visible at the opening of the pendant, honoring both skill and process. Each pendant is unique.
