Worn Shell

On loan – private residence – 2010-2012

Worn Shell, as its name implies, is a study of the internal curves of a sea shell. Trying to capture a shell’s simple elegance was a lesson in nuance and complexity. The resultant sculpture emerges from the earth and appears to become the movement of air itself. The interior is a blue-green patina to contrast the exterior mahogany patina – a nod to the secret delight of the shell hunter in all of us.
