Upright Cone Shell Object
Paying homage to the natural world, these objects are reminders of the fragility of life, the complexity and the beauty of the raw earthen form. They are transformed by adding fine silver through the process of electroforming. OurObjects from the Natural Worldunify the land, the sea, and the sky, bringing them into our home. They are mystical and ritual, engaging all the senses with a childlike whimsy. We honor the object, while preserving the wonder. This Lettered Cone Shell with its black and white markings recalls the patience of a letter written by candlelight, or the immediacy of a bold handwritten score. Measuring 4 ½” tall with a 2 ½” diameter at its widest, the shell sits upright on a hand carved circular xx” base of fine silver. It waits proudly on its pedestal, for contemplation over its graceful overlap, like a door left ajar.
