Making our Globe Pendant
Our Globe Pendant is cast from a plaster mold in which the continents have been painstakingly carved. The green underglaze settles in the valleys, enhancing the 3-dimensional geographic relief. The transparent turquoise glaze colours the oceans. The resulting is a little gem of an Earth.
