114 – Sea Glass Mandala

When I first spotted Jonathan Fuller‘s art, I thought he made it of paper. Upon closer inspection I realized that he uses sea glass which he collects along the coastline of Cornwall in the UK where he lives.

About sea glass he states:

These frosted shards are washed ashore having been tumbled by the elements against rocks and sand, creating smooth-shaped, textured jewels.

It’s a very addictive hobby driven by the chance of finding a piece which is rare and beautiful in colour. The use of it in my artworks enables these salvaged treasures to be put to an aesthetic end use.

Many of the pieces he creates are round (mandalas). I chose this one because of it reminded me of two phases of the moon…full and quarter (crescent). While made of hard material, he made it look soft and delicate like a flower, like a rose or a chrysanthemum.

He demonstrates creativity for us in how he took a rather ordinary item, saw something beautiful in it and then collectively turned into a beautiful work of art.

Happy Coloring!
