An engaging chronicle of discovery that blends glass art, science and nature, A Sea of Glass tells the story of Drew Harvell’s quest to document the conservation status of some of the oceans most charismatic marine animals, from sea slugs to octopuses. Inspired by a 150 year old collection of Blaschka glass animals that she curates at Cornell University,  Harvell dives the world’s oceans to determine how their living counterparts are faring in today’s beleaguered marine ecosystems. In the Hopkins talk, she will recount stories of some of the living matches to the Blaschka glass and their current fate and  show clips from Fragile Legacy, the award-winning video about her quest in the world’s oceans.
