Located in Fort Bragg, CA., on the Mendocino Coast, Glass Beach is the former town dump. Where once trash abounded, treasures in beautiful pieces of glass, worn gently by the sea into smooth almost gem-stone quality are in profusion - a sea-glass heaven.
Fort Bragg, CA: In 1949, the site was an unregulated dumping ground, where people threw glass, appliances and the odd car. This went on for 18 years until 1967 when the North Coast Water Quality Board closed the area and removed some of the larger articles dumped there. Over the course of a decade, the sea worked its magic by cleaning the beach and sculpting remaining glass into smooth, coloured trinkets. A testimony to both the wastefulness of humans and the resilience of nature.
