'Flux: Porthmeor beach as glass'
Talk by Abigail Reynolds
For many centuries seaweed was gathered in Cornwall, burnt and sold to the glass industry as flux.
Artist Abigail Reynolds spent the summer of 2018 making glass from sand and seaweed, recording her efforts in a short film that will be screened during the talk.
The artist followed ancient glass-making methods, gathering seaweed and sand from her local beaches.
The resulting glass is newly installed in Porthmeor Studios, where you can now look at the beach through a glass made from the same materials.
