Collecting from beaches,

                  creating with love...

Be Inspired...

Abi collects all her materials from the shores of the Dingle Peninsula, on Ireland's rugged west coast...  There is something therapeutic about beachcombing, gathering organic and ocean-weathered materials, where every footstep is a journey of discovery accompanied by the healing sounds of the ocean... 

 

Winter time is when Abi spends her hours along Dingle's wild Atlantic beaches, gathering the sea glass, driftwood, shells, pebbles, sea pottery and ocean plastic that she uses in her work...

What is Sea Glass?

Sea glass is created when glass (from bottles etc) ends up in the sea and gets broken and tumbled over time. Eventually each piece of glass becomes naturally smooth, rounded at the edges, and 'frosted' in appearance. The tides then carry the sea glass onto beaches where it can be found scattered over sand or pebbles...

What is Driftwood?

Driftwood is wood that has ended up in the ocean (down rivers, from boats, etc)...  The wind, tides and waves carry the floating pieces of wood until they drift ashore and become stranded along the tide line ready to be found...

What is Sea Pottery?

Sea pottery is old pieces of pottery and china which have ended up in the ocean and become smoothed off, worn and tumbled over time... The tides and waves bring the sea pottery pieces onto beaches,  where they can be found scattered on sand or pebbles...

What is Ocean Plastic?

Ocean plastic is plastic that gets into the world's oceans, from various sources, and is carried along with the currents.  Pieces vary in size, from tiny pieces a millimetre wide to entire fish boxes and barrels. Some of this plastic gets washed ashore with the tides, but much of it remains floating in the sea..
