Oceania - Tasman Sea

OCEANIA - TASMAN SEA tells distant worlds.

On New Zealand's beaches I frequently found shell fragments returned from the ocean.

I then learned that skilled local craftsmen give new life to these gifts of nature, grinding them and highlighting their veins and iridescences.

The Paua Shell, this is the name of the shells, mostly from the Tasmanian Sea, inspired me with this collection: "embraces" in red or golden bronze create a protective "treasure chest" and guard these treasures.
