I received a really nice note from Bob and Amy about their Shell Art. In fact they do have a website.

I updated the shell art post with that information. Check it out for available works and contact information.

shell art

leave a comment »

The story about shell artist Amy Jager Ramsey in the May issue of Martha Stewart Living really pulled me in. She makes this really gorgeous art using small seashells she finds. I believe its something that has been in her family for a few generations. She didn’t have much interest in shell work as a child but took up the craft about 7 or 8 years ago. You can view her work at www.bobamy.com/shellwork.

Not only did I think her art was amazing I also thought wow this is a great gift idea if you have any crafty friends or family members. There is a how to guide on how to start making your own seashell art on marthastewart.com. It would be such a great idea to print the guide out and gift with a few starter tools and a couple packages of seashells.

Check out what Heather Knight is doing over at Element Studio in Asheville North Carolina. She makes these gorgeous ceramic tiles and sculptures. The tiles are about 8×8 and sell for about $150 and the spiked pears go for about $195.
