OTIS Eyewear Collaborates with Russ Pope on the Sea Glass Collection
Oceanside, CA – OTIS Eyewear, an Australian-founded, premium, 100% mineral glass lens eyewear brand is pleased to announce the release of the Sea Glass Collection in collaboration with artist Russ Pope.
Worn by waves, recycled by the sea, sea glass is a product of both man and nature. Sea glass begins as bottles and glass that has made its way to the shore, broken, and then tumbled smooth by the waves and currents. Naturally produced sea glass is originally made by man and refined by nature.

The OTIS Sea Glass Collection takes these frosted colors created by the ocean and brings them to life in a limited edition range of frames, paired with our naturally sourced, scratch resistant, mineral glass lenses.

Russ hand selected each color in the Sea Glass Collection. "I've walked many a beach with my wife hunting for our favorite treasure sea glass," says Russ. "Both colors are regulars in my color palette and often find their way into my art. The frame styles, sea glass colors and mineral glass make these my favorites. Hope you dig em as much as I do."
To celebrate the release of the collection, Russ hand painted an original mural atop the packaging of the first hundred units. Each package comes away with a piece of the mural along with a limited cleaning cloth that features Russ' artwork. The hand painted packaging can only be found at premium OTIS dealers in the United States. See more of Russ’ process here.
