I love this idea! And I love this colorful beauty of a glass float…reminds me of a “negative” image of the planet Jupiter.
It began with the 1999-2000 season and continues today. In Lincoln City, OR, local glass artisans create one-of-a-kind glass floats for the LC Visitor and Convention Bureau’s annual “Finders Keepers” event. They “hide” the floats along the tide lines of the coast, inviting people to visit Lincoln City to search for their own brilliantly-colored, signed and numbered glass float.
From the OregonCoast.org site:
For Lincoln City, the Millennium Float [1999-2000] project was a perfect combination of art and the outdoors. Those who came in search of a float often found their way to area galleries where unnumbered floats were available for sale, along with a dizzying array of fine art glass from around the world.
BTW…They are having a Special Glass Drop of 100 glass art pieces on the LC beach for Thanksgiving weekend, Nov 27-29! (although I understand that it’s not a literal “drop”)
My husband found a cool blue and white one about 10 years ago…we still treasure it to this day!
Today’s MotD invites us to ponder this question:
What treasures about ourselves are we hiding that would much rather be out in the open and discovered?
