Why wait for summer?!

 

This beautiful, bold, sea glass sunflower is made with perfect seaberries from Seaham*, UK, sea glass and pottery from Portishead, and finished with a light smattering of water colour. 

 

Captured perfectly in a white wooden box frame measuring 18x18cm (aperture 13.5cm), this unique piece of artwork will make an eyecatching addition to any wall. 

 

* World renowned amongst sea glass lovers, Seaham beach yields some of the most sought after sea glass pieces. 

 

The Londonderry Bottleworks, which operated from the 1850s to 1921, was the largest in Britain. Producing up to 20,000 hand-blown bottles every day, they distributed their glassworks world wide. At the end of each day, waste glass was dumped into the North Sea which obviously would be frowned upon in this day and age.

 

However, over 100 years later, the colourful glass that can be found - beautifully smoothed and shaped by the rough North Sea - truly are gems to be treasured.
