|My Inspiration - Collection of Sea Shells|
When I saw Donna Greenberg's latest installations of underwater polymer, I knew I had to use my seashells as inspiration to create my own polymer beach segment. It was such fun to develop the shells. The following pictures show the development of the mushroom coral.
|Basic shell shape|
|I cut each oval in half and used a paper punch for the holes.|
|I stacked each half and put a wire through them to create a circle.|

|Deciding how many were enough and how many were too much.|
|The most fun shell I made was the water bear's egg. In reality it is minute but it was such fun I made it bigger!|

This project was such fun. I enjoyed exploring the shapes in polymer and the subtle use of color. It will hang on the wall in the next 'Changing of the Colors' at Prescott Art Market.
