FROM TRASH TO SEA GLASS TREASURE

Sunday January 20
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Bring your own sea glass for identification and learn everything you ever wanted to know about these treasures. Jewelry artists will be on hand with their handcrafted sea glass creations and the Museum Store will feature many new sea glass pieces available for purchase.

Sea glass is glass that is found on beaches along oceans or large lakes that has been tumbled and smoothed by the water and sand into smooth frosted glass. “A lot of its attraction is nostalgia – wondering what it is and where it came from,” said Richard LaMotte. His book with its beautiful photographs presents some of the best sea glass ever collected. See glassware samples and purchase a signed copy of the Pure SEA GLASS book in the Museum Store.

Think you have an amazing piece of sea glass? New this year is our “Glass With A Past” contest as judged by Richard LaMotte. One lucky winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Museum Store! Two runners up will also be chosen and awarded a prize. Winners will be chosen at the end of the day and must be present to win.

Sunday Conversations are FREE events. For more information, please contact Maureen Baughman, Store Manager at 410-326-2750 or email baughmmp@co.cal.md.us.
