‘This glass is a beach refined by hands and then fire, shaped by breath and gravity…’ To make this unique glass the artist has followed ancient methods, using seaweed as a flux to melt the sand from Porthmeor, transforming the beach into glass. Standing here, you can look at the beach through the lens of itself. Porthmeor is on loan from the artist.

A short film that tells the story of this glass can be found
