Collecting seaglass on sunny afternoons is one of the best ways to explore the coast. The colorful glass fragments are debris that has been tossed in the ocean (unfortunate yet true), but in the hands of Cornish textile designer Johnny Fuller it becomes art.
Having been gradually weathered in salt water for at least 20-30 years (that’s how long it takes to get its smooth, frosted glaze), these tiny shards take on new life. They might have been buried in the sand, or washed away again by the tides – but instead they’re collected to form Fuller’s simple, modern artworks. The art’s circular shapes reflect the sea’s natural cycle.
