New Commissioned Glass Art Pieces Installed at Downtown St. Petersburg’s New Community

Post Time:Sep 24,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:296

New pieces of glass artwork commissioned for Ovation, a luxury waterfront community in St. Petersburg, Fla., have been installed in the building’s main lobby. “The Family” by Tampa-based glass sculptor Susan Gott is now on display for building residents and visitors. 

Gott’s “The Family” is a grouping of six life-size abstract figures made of textured glass casting, layered with color, carvings, lines and symbols, incorporating the forms and colors used throughout the building. More abstract than some of her other work, Gott describes the pieces, installed within raised niches on facing walls, as “totemic.” “The Family” includes spirals and circular and oval motifs frequently seen in Gott’s work.

“While some viewers will see these simply as decorative elements that catch light and bounce it around in different ways,” Gott says, “to me they are important parts of the piece, symbolizing chakras or healing centers.”
