Seashore Specimens (ii). ‘I was especially pleased to discover this specimen during our stay at the coast.’

This is an original one-off assemblage which I have created inside an antique carved hardwood box.

Clara has written her notes inside the box lid in the centre of the delicate fragmented remains of the original label. Her cherished find has been carefully placed inside the base of the box: an oyster shell in hues of rust and blue-grey containing a painted handmade paper ammonite. I created the ammonite using cotton linters paper, fitting it snugly inside the shell as if it had been there forever….

Please note this is a delicate one off piece of artwork and cannot be re-created.
