Green sea glass, weathered and smooth, the same light hue of water in the tropics or in the Croatian sea, is one of my favorite things on earth. Finding a piece of green sea glass, experience something similar to the gentle Bushman in the film, The Gods Must Be Crazy .

As an artist I feel a similar push to return the green glass of the ocean to its creator, but I take the more metaphorical route. I feel an urge to bring it home as a glass sculpture, an earring, or necklace. Green or blue recycled glass finds a home as wearable art, bringing the ocean, the sense of sky and space above and below closer to our body. Making use of recycled glass, plastic, etc. is putting the “stuff” of our world into a simple space.
