Sea Shell Collage

My artist and scuba diver friend Bill Brown collected shells from his many travels around the Caribbean, Great Barrier Reef, Indonesia, and South Pacific Oceans. He brought some to his home in New Harmony and when he moved back to Florida permanently he gave me boxes of these dusty old shells in plastic bags with hand written notes of their origin. I decided to arrange some of them onto a plywood backdrop with an old weathered oak frame around it. I love how unique each of these shells are. They add so much sculpture and beauty to my bathroom and are beautiful natural art pieces on their own.
