Book Summary:

"From diving for dangerous jellyfish in the Mediterranean to searching for harpoon-backed sea slugs in Southeast Asia, A Sea of Glass recounts the author's quest to document the living invertebrates that inspired history's greatest father-son glassmaking team to spin their likenesses into glass more than 160 years ago. The story of these artists, Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka, whose menagerie of unusual marine creatures was packed away for decades in a Cornell University storage unit, provides a time capsule of life in earlier oceans untouched by climate change and human impacts. A Sea of Glass takes readers into a world rarely glimpsed, introducing the surprising and unusual biology of some of the most ancient animals on the tree of life. On the way, we glimpse a century of change in our ocean ecosystems and learn which of the Blaschkas's living counterparts are indeed as fragile as glass"--Provided by publisher.

Book Summary:

No one ever talks about the beauty in the pain the stillness that can only come from accepting its edge how the face of God becomes clearer in every. agonizing. breath. Suffering is the most damnable place on earth. But when I lay here in its wake and let it wash over and through me I become a sacred, beautiful, holy tragedy that is so wholly here and so wholly in the realm of angels that nothing on this side of heaven can touch me. Julie was first inspired to write poetry in the midst of heartache. As her writings quickly evolved into intense, intimate conversations with God, she found herself deepening in her walk with Him and delving into deep places within herself, shaping her faith and worldview. In this volume of poems, Julie interweaves her hearts expression with prayer and Scrip-ture, reflecting on experiences such as the beauty found in pain, the baptism of a sweet friendship in Franklin, Tennessee, the loss of love and its subsequent healing, the Lord’s blinding love and crushing mercy, and a premonition delivered by a little old lady in church. Sea of Glass shares poems that explore a variety of inspirational topics while inviting us all to reflect on our relationships with God, our loved ones, and the world around us.

Book Summary:

"The author makes an eloquent plea for marine biodiversity conservation."—Library Journal "Harvell seems to channel the devotion that motivated the Blaschkas."—The Guardian Winner of the 2016 National Outdoor Book Award, Environment Category It started with a glass octopus. Dusty, broken, and all but forgotten, it caught Drew Harvell’s eye. Fashioned in intricate detail by the father-son glassmaking team of Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, the octopus belonged to a menagerie of unusual marine creatures that had been packed away for decades in a storage unit. More than 150 years earlier, the Blaschkas had been captivated by marine invertebrates and spun their likenesses into glass, documenting the life of oceans untouched by climate change and human impacts. Inspired by the Blaschkas’ uncanny replicas, Harvell set out in search of their living counterparts. In A Sea of Glass, she recounts this journey of a lifetime, taking readers along as she dives beneath the ocean's surface to a rarely seen world, revealing the surprising and unusual biology of some of the most ancient animals on the tree of life. On the way, we glimpse a century of change in our ocean ecosystems and learn which of the living matches for the Blaschkas’ creations are, indeed, as fragile as glass. Drew Harvell and the Blaschka menagerie are the subjects of the documentary Fragile Legacy, which won the Best Short Film award at the 2015 Blue Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit.
