Oyster and snail shells collecting becomes like rock collecting, there’s always one more coming into your collection once you start. There are lots of shells around, and I gathered many of them with pleasure in my walking on the beach. I like the jagged outline of the oyster shells and the spirals of snail shells, is fascinating to compare them... I never found two identical.
I'm using them in miniature gardens and small green eco-arrangements to bring into the viewer's soul a bit of serenity and the mirage of the ocean.
For special occasions (as Thanksgiving Day) I bought some giant shells, more specials, and I made nice centerpieces to decorate Thanksgiving's table.
Last weekend I made some new arrangements to decorate our friend's office for a product presentation.
The tables were arranged in a circle and the space was quite limited, so we realized small eco-compositions with shells and rocks to transform the room into a productive and inspiring space.
In the Art of Kusamono usually a plant composition includes potted plants and flowers in unique ceramic pots or trays...
I did these arrangements with unique shells (natural trays) and accent plants combined with moss, grass, small rocks, kind of dreamy "micro-gardens" with succulent plants as Sedum Rubrotinctum, Sedum Angelina and Hens and Chicks: Sempervivum Tectorum / Sempervivum Macedonicum.
To enhance their natural look, we used as display stands few of our rocks and pieces of wood / bark.
Hope you like them too.
