Description

An artwork that features colorful seashells that vary in size, shape color and pattern. The shells are composed within an altered and repurposed wood shadow box. Here two printer's type trays are joined and spaces are changed. Large bodied seashells are cut and ground. Small and thin bodied shells are raised. All are within a space that is less than 1.25" high. The large shells are seen in relief, yet appear full bodied. Thin shells appear to float.
The resulting composition has different interpretations. Are the shells telling a story? Are they game pieces like chessmen? Are the shells thought of as sculpture or paint?

This version measures about 33.5" square. It is a custom order only. No two are exactly the same. Many of the same type shells are used. New ones are always sought. Some are no longer available. You can see a preview before the composition is fixed. You may want to include some of your own shells.

Please contact me with any questions before ordering. The shipping cost shown is an average. It will be determined by your zip code.
