Nature’s Own Stained Glass Window: The Creation of Glass Beach

by

Litter is known for ruining picturesque landscapes. However, Kaleidoscope Beach in Russia has seen ‘Mother Nature’ use litter to create one of the country’s most beautiful locations. Looking at the photos, it is no wonder why this location is a favourite of stained glass specialists Steve Sherriff.

How was Glass Beach formed?

Once a dumping ground for glass bottles, the now aptly-named Glass Beach is covered in stunning coloured stones. The beach, which was previously too dangerous for locals to walk on, has seen waves round and smoothen glass shards over the years to create a beach full of coloured pebbles. Now a tourist destination, Glass Beach is undoubtedly a great source of inspiration when designing stained glass windows and stained glass doors.

Where is it?

This stained glass beach is located close to the Eastern naval port of Vladivostok in the Ussuri Bay. It now sees flocks of sun-seekers visit the beach each summer, with Russian authorities making the area a specially protected zone to preserve its beauty. Whether you are someone looking for inspiration on colour patterns for your stained glass windows or just a mesmerised admirer, there is no doubt that Glass Beach is home to a wealth of stunning scenery.
