PASSION FOR SEA GLASS

$35.00

There’s something about sea glass that captures the imagination of anyone who loves the romance and mystery of the sea. But some people take their passion for ocean-tossed bits of glass and pottery a step further. Their days are punctuated by the rhythm of the tides no matter what the weather. For some, their quest for sea glass has turned into a career; for others, a life-changing environment.

Carole Lambert opens up homes and workshops of collectors who give new purpose to these shoreline finds. Here you’ll meet an artist who created a series of stained-glass windows made entirely of sea glass, a diver who brings up rare and valuable glass from the deep, designers of sea glass jewelry and hair ornaments, those who make mosaics, bird houses, and even gnome homes, all embellished with sea glass.

A Passion for Sea Glass, Author: C.S. Lambert, Photographer: Amy Wilton
Hardcover, 160 pages, 200 color photos, 8-1/2″ x 11″.
