Custom Beach Sand Vases by Kevin Becker


From the Boston Globe

We saw these at a Cape Cod art show and were captivated by the concept: Glass artist Kevin Becker of Westwood, Mass., creates blown glass “beach memories” vases using sand from the beach of your choice. What a cool way to preserve the memory of that special beach — where you spent your honeymoon, perhaps, or the strand of sand where you and your siblings built sand castles together. Using your own sand, or a sample of sand from his own collection, Becker will make a piece of art that recalls waves, water, and sand. His hand-blown hummingbird feeder ($28) is also a beauty. Vases are 6 to 8 inches tall, and prices start at $65. Available at Dedham Square Artist Guild, 553 High St., Dedham; www.beckerglass.net.

Kevin Becker needs ½ to 1 cup of sand. Kevin need orders (including sand) by Dec. 15 in order to complete and ship for Xmas. Feel free to call the artist at any time with any questions.
