Donald Verger’s 2013 Sea Glass Calendar is now available on Amazon! The work speaks for itself in it’s pure beauty, but the journey is an inherently gratifying part of the creation process and important to share with friends in the blogosphere.
Donald has been joining his friends on sea glass expeditions recently, discovering a love of sea glass hunting and reinvigorating his creative impulse. Using the sea glass as a subject and arranging it in different patterns, Donald’s photographic lens tended towards the quiet allure of sea glass. Drawing inspiration from the photographs of Josie Iselin, C.S. Lambert, and Richard LaMotte, Donald used beach combing finds to create mandala-like photographic meditations of pure sea glass. Donald traversed beaches from Down East in Maine, Florida, and Monterrey Bay and Ft. Bragg, California, finding sea glass in radiant reds, pure pastels, yellows, greens, and turquoise pieces. The sea glass was placed to illuminate the pure beauty of the glass.
The calendars are available here on Amazon, along with other one page calendars. Makes a great gift for the sea glass lover, be it in the sea glass hunting sort of love, or collecting sea glass. If you are living outside of the United States and a fan of the Sea Glass calendar, you can use this link for calendars that can be shipped internationally.
