A mixed media artwork in which seashells from around the world are featured within a letterpress printer's type box made by joining two type drawers, made into one, with altered spaces and whitewashed. Each space displays a sculpture like shell. Large shells require cutting from the back and are seen in relief. Small and thin shells are mounted on a base to bring nearly all the shells to the same visual plane or height within the box.

The overall size is about 34" x 34". The outer frame is about 2" deep. It retains a clear acrylic face.
The frame is easily removable. Cutting seashells results in fine dust. Though I remove most of it,
some particles may get caught in the shell interior. Shipping may dislodge them. Simply remove the frame and face. Then clean the inner surface with a soft cloth, and install the frame. Most of the frames have four screws to remove and insert. If shipping results in any shell becoming unglued, you can use readily available glues to attach it. Crazy glue, hot melt glue, PL adhesive are some that will work.You can contact me for assistance.

This is a custom order only. No two compositions are exactly alike. But many of the same shells are used with some additions. Some shells may not be available.
