Sunny Shell Sculpture

Artist Valerie Carmet transforms the childlike wonder of collecting seashells at the beach into sophisticated works of art. This piece is made of scores of iridescent, ocean-cleaned jingle shells, collected along the coast of Long Island. The artist then carefully assembles selected shells into a flower-like composition that's part collage, part mosaic, and part sculpture. It's mounted in an elegant, floating metal frame that provides compelling contrast to the organic and infinitely varied forms of the shells. It makes distinctive decor for an ocean-lover's office, beach house, or any space that could benefit from the allure of the sea. The piece comes individually signed and numbered by the artist. Handmade in New York.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Infinite Yellow Sanibel:

      This is a stunning piece! My 4-year old son said "THAT'S BEAUTIFUL" when we opened it... The piece fits effortlessly into our decor and is truly a conversation piece. Probably have to clean with compressed air, as it's delicate, but the piece is simply stunning. I will be ordering the entire collection of 3, as these are one-of-a kind masterpieces. You can't go wrong!
