What is sea glass?
Bottles lost at sea and broken against rocks decades ago are tossed and tumbled in the ocean to be found along the shores, smoothed, rounded and perfected by nature. Each piece of glass has a story of origin. Often from wine bottles, root beer, Coca Cola, antique perfume and medicine bottles, ships lanterns and car rear lights.... that found themselves in ocean dumps or thrown out at sea. The stories go on. Each is a timeless treasure.
Susan has gone down a road less traveled. She produced environmental and cultural television and radio programs for PBS outside San Francisco, California. She developed better access to public health and health resources for the State of Massachusetts, building an online database, local and regional libraries, and tools for educators and residents of the Commonwealth to educate the public on public health issues including substance abuse and teen health. She is a web designer and photographer and has traveled extensively throughout the world. She attended California College of Arts, San Francisco State University and Boston University earning a B.A. and M.Ed. She learned to work with silver at the Artist Guild in Falmouth, MA during the summer months at age 12 and continues to work with the same hand tools from those early days.
