I love to work with sea glass. After years of practise I have perfected the art of combining both sea glass and ceramic to create beautiful jewellery and ceramic art that I pride my business on. In this post I will explain how I go about making my work with sea glass.
What makes Sea Glass different from ordinary glass?
So Sea Glass begins as normal shards of broken glass that are then persistently tumbled by the oceans currents and ground until the edges are smoothed and rounded. In this process, the glass loses its shiny surface and gains a frosted appearance over many years. This process can take up to 100 years for the glass to be properly processed into Sea Glass.
Where does Sea Glass come from ?
Who knows. The ocean is a powerful force of nature and can carry materials from one side of the world to another. So no one can really know where the Sea Glass has come from. Sea Glass could have originated from broken bottles, broken tableware, antique medicine bottles or even shipwreck, its truly amazing and exciting to think about.
