Sea Glass

Sea glass was once an old broken bottle or forgotten trinket that made it's way to the sea. Over years of tumbling in and out with the tides the shards of glass are worn smooth and frosted by the sand and salt. Sea glass is often used as a metaphor for transformation, resiliency and renewal. Something once broken and forgotten becomes a found treasure that is cherished, holding onto the energy and magic it has gained from it's time in the sea, and soaking up the moonlight on the shore. In my pieces the sea glass undergoes another transformation in the kiln. It melts at the same temperature as the glaze, which shares many of the same elements, and collects to form vibrant smooth surfaces that sparkle in the sun.
