Sea Glass Segment On Martha Stewart With Richard LaMotte

September 30, 2010 at 5:54 pm Leave a comment

A wonderful segment was aired yesterday on the Martha Stewart show with Richard LaMotte, an expert on sea glass identification and the author of  “Pure Sea Glass“.  








Richard LaMotte brought a beautiful assortment of sea glass with him which included aqua sea glass, blue sea glass and the very rare orange and red sea glass.  He provided information on the origin of many of the sea glass colors and brought wonderful examples of bottles, jars and other antiques to show how these gems are formed and where their stunning colors originated from. 

One of my all time favorite sea glass books is written by Mr. Lamotte,  “Pure Sea Glass”  which is my personal sea glass bible.  I refer to this book and his expertise often when I am trying to identify a new treasure discovered on the beaches here in Maine.  This book provides as a useful tool and reference for any beachcomber. I highly recommend it. 

As I have always said, which Richard LaMotte mentioned on the show, winter is the best time of the year to find sea glass.  I don’t even start my serious sea glass hunting until after September. This is when we have found some our best treasures for our collections and sea glass jewelry designs.  The beaches are quiet, few tourists are left and the fall and winter weather has brought some high seas with its passing storms.  The sea glass has been  stirred up with all of this wave action and has a much better chance of reaching the coast then the calm waters of summer, which is when most people are hunting for sea glass.  Some of largest and most prized pieces of seaglass were found druing this time. Just bundle up. Walking by the ocean here in Maine during the winter months can be quite chilly.  The surf on the Maine coastline is one of the best sea glass producing areas around.
