Dog days of summer equal beach time fun and sand castle making. Of course I took it one step further and made a custom 30 gallon trash can mold to begin my sand castle. After one day the wind got to it and turned it into mother natures masterpiece.

A tiny art piece I created last week. Features a Shiva shell on a bed of red coral. If you look closely you can see a black fly flew into the piece when it was drying.

My first ever sea glass art piece. Composed of 100% sea glass that I collected….mostly from the beaches of Monterrey, California but some from Newport as well. The clear backing allows the sunlight to shine thru creating a stained glass look. It is hanging in a window of my bedroom and I have plans to make another…..just have to collect the sea glass first!

This is by far my biggest and heaviest piece I have ever made. Pictures really don’t do it justice…..I used many broken shells in the piece and in some areas the resin is about an inch thick. It doesn’t have a home yet so please let me know if you are interested.

This is one of my earlier pieces that I made a few years ago before I started to use the bar top resin. My brother has had it in his room for a long time and recently asked me to cover it in the resin.

This project was almost a year in the making. It started with the bottle that I picked up after it was handed around the head table at Josh and Mary Cast’s wedding. I then spent many beach walks collecting the tiny Coquina shells with some help from others. After that I cleaned, counted and re-inserted all the shells back into the bottle. Final tally ….5582 shells and of course it is going to the Cast residence!
