Seaham Seaglass Island Birds - Tiny Seaglass Art
The Seaglass in this piece was found on the shores of the Seaham, UK as well as the beautiful shores of Scotland. The little birds were inspired by Pink Flamingos. The pink and white Seaglass is very rare, and is known as “Seaham Seaglass Multi”, since they would have been scrap glass from old glass factories in the area. Tossed and turned by the ocean waves to produce a multi coloured, smooth glass.
Please note colors may look different when viewing in different light. Seaglass, as with any glass illuminates in bright light. Placing your art close to a window or a light source always helps bring out the colors of the glass.
What is seaglass?
Seaglass originates as pieces of glass from broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years until all of their edges are rounded off, and the slickness of the glass has been worn to a frosted appearance.
