The Seashells
Sculpting the seashells is a meditative and sanative practice of processing pieces of self-discovery and uncovering connections of who we are with who we were. The process of collecting shells to sculpt, the gleaning and keeping, represents the uncovering and observing what the past offers us to find out about ourselves.
Inspired in part by Cynthia Barnett’s The Sound of the Sea: Seashells and the Fate of the Oceans, this body of work also acknowledges and celebrates the role of the shell throughout the development of Indigenous Culture and our connection to the land and sea.
