I love to see the glossy, jewel-like, bright colours of beach glass as I walk along the seashore. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of it along the Jurassic Coast. I guess this is partly because of the great efforts to keep these beaches clean but also because people are more likely to use and throw away plastic bottles these days. Anyway, if I spot a piece, I put it in my pocket and take it home. Over time the quantity builds up enough to make an arrangement in a bowl or jar on my window sill. This is the current assortment on show. Amongst the mosaic pattern of every shade of white and green, the toffee-brown and the blue pieces stand out. The best piece has to be the heart-shaped one.
