The shell masks are made on a ceramic base. Their faces have been handpainted by a fellow artist and friend. The two female masks can be hung on a wall or placed in a stand. The Viking mask has to be hung as the coral is very delicate and breaks easily if anything presses against it.
The Under the Sea Shell Queen is made with a large variety of seashells which I envisioned would be found at the bottom of the sea. Her crowing piece is a beautiful half nautilus shell with white lace coral peeking out. I got my inspiration for her from the Chicquita Banana lady that had a crown of fruit on her head. You may be too young to remember her.
Magnus The Viking Mask is a tribute to my grandfather who is from Oslo, Norway. His beard is made completly from red Pipe Organ Coral. The coral comes in a cluster similar to a head of cabbage. I had to break it apart in pieces and then cut it down so the beard wouldn’t be too high and glue it to the shape of the face. Once the chunks were glued on I had to go back and glue one tiny piece at a time to fill in the gaps between chunks. The white shells on the side of the mask are angel wing shells. The long brown and white things are sea urchin spines. The small brownish shells are umboniums. When I first saw the mask I immediately knew he had to have that red beard.
All three of these masks are on display and for sale at an art gallery in Flagler Beach, FL near where I live. The name of the gallery is GOLA, Gallery of Local Art. I also volunteer there two days a month. I am a native Floridan born in Miami and currently live in Palm Coast, Florida.
I have been doing shell art for a little over two years. I have a shop on Etsy and my own website with a variety of othe items. I will also be selling on Amazon Handmade soon.
