Artist Valerie Carmet has taken the wonders of picking up seashells at the beach and transforming it into a sophisticated work of art.
All seashells are handpicked and then carefully assembled into a flower-like piece of art that is part collage, part mosaic, part sculpture.
The final piece is mounted in a modern, contemporary floating metal frame which contrasts with the organic form of the shells.
Each piece is handmade, unique and comes signed by the artist.
Materials: Made of scores of iridescent, ocean-cleaned jingle shells also called mermaid toe nails from Shelter Island and Sanibel shores, wood , metal.
Sizes are in inches ( 10 inches= 25.4 cms)
Care : Dust clean with a feather duster
Note : Due to the reclaimed materials and handmade nature of this item , no two are alike and variances are to be expected.
