This unique product has been with us since the beginning of opening our studio in 1991.
Hot glass is poured over a Detroit sewer cap and allowed to cool. This puddle is truly one-of-a-kind and different every time we make one.
Using 100% recycled glass from our studio, we offer them in dark blue or a light recycled blue. These look amazing when placed up to the light, best with natural light.
A perfect gift for yourself or anyone who loves Detroit and wants to show support in the middle of this crazy pandemic!
These come in the following varieties:
The original Detroit in light or deep recycled blue, depending on the concentration of the recycled glass - 11.5 inches wide
The original Detroit in crystal clear - 11.5 inches wide
Mini Detroit in recycled blue - 6.5 inches wide
Mini Michigan in recycled blue - 6.5 inches wide
Made in Dearborn, Michigan!
Being "green" is second nature here at the Glass Academy!
When our excess glass is melted down, all the other color melts out except for blue. Cobalt, the metal that creates the color blue in glass, always remains! The result is this beautiful watery blue color.
